Dozens Arrested on ‘Much Better Night’ in Ferguson, Missouri
At least 44 people were arrested as protests erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, for a second night over the Michael Brown case, police said early Wednesday.
Two guns and a Molotov cocktail were seized while rocks, broken tent poles and bottles were hurled at officers, according to St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar. Windows were broken at City Hall and tear gas was deployed nearby. However, there was no repeat of the widespread shooting, looting and arsons the wracked the St. Louis suburb overnight Monday.
“Generally it was a much better night,” Belmar told a 2:30 a.m. ET news conference. Most of the arrests were for misdemeanors, he added. They included people residing in New York, Oklahoma and Georgia.
