Police have announced that they made close to 100 arrests in Louisville, Kentucky, yesterday during the protests over the grand jury’s decision to not indict officers in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor.

The Associated Press report that a police statement released early this morning says some people were arrested after damaging businesses and more were detained after jumping on city vehicles being used as barricades. Later, protesters who refused orders to disperse were arrested for curfew and unlawful assembly violations.
