MINNEAPOLIS — Fourteen people were arrested Tuesday night after a few dozen protesters demonstrated against police brutality in Minneapolis, according to police.
Protesters blocked intersections in the Uptown neighborhood, spray-painted store fronts, shot off firecrackers and threw traffic signs and debris into the streets, according to police spokesman John Elder. Some held a banner that read "America is over."
Fires were seen that appear to have been set by this group, a news release said.
As officers approached, some demonstrators shot fireworks at officers and refused to obey their commands, police said.
The 14 were arrested on probable cause rioting or fourth-degree assault about 10 p.m. They were booked into the Hennepin County Jail.
