NYPD: 10 arrested during Ferguson decision protest
(AP) -- The NYPD says 10 people were arrested as thousands protested for a second night the decision not to indict a white Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager.
The arrests occurred Tuesday night in Times Square. Four people were charged with resisting arrest and six with disorderly conduct.
There were no injuries. Police say the protests were largely peaceful.
Police Commissioner William Bratton said officers were giving protesters "breathing room" to express outrage as long as they remained nonviolent.
The protesters gathered in Union Square before splitting up into separate groups, chanting "No justice, no peace."
They caused traffic disruptions on the FDR Drive and congregated at the entrances to the Williamsburg and Manhattan bridges and the Queens Midtown Tunnel.
