BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office says that 50 people were arrested during Sunday's protests.
According to the EBR Parish Prison booking sheet, all but seven of those arrested were from outside of the Baton Rouge area. An additional four are from cities directly neighboring Baton Rouge. The majority are from New Orleans. The rest are from Minnesota, North Carolina, Missouri, Georgia, New York, Washington D.C. and other cities from around Louisiana.
More than half of the individuals arrested were white females.
The ACLU responded to the weekend of arrests with the following statement:
Nearly 200 people have been arrested since Friday.
Sunday protesters held a peaceful march to the State Capitol where for a second day speakers emphasized peace. Later a group of protesters attempted to block Government Street outside of WAFB and the interstate. Police and Sheriff's deputies managed to stop protesters before they were able to get onto the interstate.
Protesters gathered outside of Baton Rouge Police Headquarters for a third day but that protest remained mostly peaceful.
