LOS ANGELES—In response to last week’s Missouri Grand Jury decision to not indict former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, protestors took to the streets of Los Angeles to voice their displeasure.
Protestors went as far as to block Hollywood’s Southbound 101 freeway, leading to a temporary closure of the busy route and the arrest of nine protestors.
A group of approximately three-dozen protestors were arrested near the intersection of South Flower and West Ninth Streets.
Most of the arrests were for misdemeanor disturbing of the peace. Separate charges were placed against those who blocked the freeway. One individual was booked for felony battery of a police officer and is being held on $25,000 bail.
The city of Los Angles arrested a total of 338 protestors, most were related to many Ferguson-related protests that occurred across the country.
