Ferguson Police Arrest Protesters Amid Unruly Riots, The latest in the events marking a year since the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri (all times local):

10 p.m.

Police have made several arrests in Ferguson after protesters blocked a traffic lane on West Florissant Avenue.

Officers with bullhorns directed protesters to clear the roadway, and others in riot gear forced people out of the street. Some demonstrators threw water bottles and other debris at officers.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar told The Associated Press: “They’re not going to take the street tonight. That’s not going to happen.”

Several people were handcuffed and put into two vans.

“What did I do?” one woman asked repeatedly.

Monday marks the fourth consecutive night of protests marking the anniversary of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

A demonstration in the same location a night earlier was interrupted by gunfire. St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger has declared a state of emergency, authorizing Belmar to take control of police emergency management in and around Ferguson.
