FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Frustration is rising inside - and outside - of Ferguson, after protester's disruptive tactics over the weekend.

A protest in Ferguson left drivers trapped and a protest at Busch Stadium did not go over well with fans.

On Saturday, demonstrators gathered on South Florissant Road, near the Ferguson police station.  At one point, they blocked traffic, forcing cars to turn around.  One driver refused and continued to move her car forward, bumping protesters.  Other protesters reportedly got angry and kicked the car before police intervened.

"We had a resident - a business owner - that was literally surrounded in her automobile on South Florissant Road," said Brian Fletcher, with the I Love Ferguson committee." She was not able to move for 25 minutes. She said her windows were down, she was insulted and cursed at."

Police arrested the driver and two protesters after that incident.
