CHICAGO — Police say two men were arrested during a protest in Chicago in solidarity with demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, around the anniversary of Michael Brown's death.
Protesters gathered Tuesday night near Chicago police headquarters. Chicago Police spokeswoman Officer Amina Greer says two men were detained and cited around 8 p.m. Police say the men were arrested for inhibiting the flow of traffic.
Protesters marched to another Chicago Police facility where the two men were being held. Protesters stayed until the men were released later in the night.
Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson police officer after a confrontation on Aug. 9, 2014. Protests have taken place in the St. Louis suburb in recent days.
