According to police and witnesses, several people were arrested Wednesday night during a protest in Brooklyn in the wake of the decision not to indict the New York police in Daniel Prude’s death.
Dozens of protesters signaled a large police response from McCarren Park in Williamsburg around 7 pm with around 300 police.
Witnesses said the post had arrested at least nine people. Police confirmed that some arrests were made.
Several protesters began attacking pedestrians and sprayed a cab on South 4th Street and Driggs Avenue near the Williamsburg Bridge.
A large crowd is seen at the scene in the video on the Citizen app and can be heard hovering over a police helicopter in the area.
The protests came a day after a Roshan police officers voted not to vote on the Rochester police officers involved in the death of Daniel Prude, who was suffocated on March 23 due to being naked and mentally shattered.
He was left brain dead and died a week later.
