Of 51 Recent Arrests in Ferguson, 1 Is a Resident

Wednesday, 20 Aug 2014 06:13 PM

 

St. Louis County police say 51 people were arrested from mid-day Tuesday through early Wednesday in Ferguson — all but one of them from out of town.

Information released Wednesday shows that most of those arrested were cited for refusal to disperse, but a few face weapons charges, disorderly conduct or possession of burglary tools charges. Two men are charged with assaulting a police officer.

Many of those arrested are from nearby communities, but just one woman lists a Ferguson address.

Ferguson has been on edge since the Aug. 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a city police officer. Hundreds of protesters are crowding West Florissant Avenue every night, resulting in some clashes with police.
