BLM protest in NYC: New York protest calling for justice for Breonna Taylor ends with 12 arrests



Twelve people were arrested during a protest in the Greenwich Village neighborhood, New York Police Department spokeswoman Denise Moroney said.

Protesters in New York occupied the Brooklyn Bridge and blocked traffic for over an hour.

Eight of those arrested were summoned for disorder, Moroney said.

The other four charges, including resisting the arrest, obstruction of government administration, pedestrians on the street and “violating local laws” for using an “amplified audio device” in a nearby park, Moroney said. A man is accused of assaulting a police officer.

Three of the arrested were released with desk tickets, meaning the person will have to appear in court at a later date.
