NEW YORK (PIX11) — Of the hundreds of protesters who gathered in New York City Tuesday to denounce what they called undue force by police officers nationwide, dozens were led away from the event in handcuffs, police said.
At least 42 people were arrested in the march, which was organized by National Actions to Stop Murder by Police. The charges against those arestees varied, a police spokeswoman said, adding that all charges were misdemeanors. Most of the violations involved pedestrians walking on the roadway of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Marches took to the span after a rally in Manhattan’s Union Square. Then they marched on Broadway to the Brooklyn Bridge, where they partially blocked traffic.
