Police Chief Calvin Williams said in a press conference Sunday morning that 71 people were arrested during protests over Cleveland Police Patrolman Michael Brelo’s acquittal.
Williams, along with Mayor Frank Jackson, said that, while protesters were mostly peaceful during the day, some became violent Saturday evening.
Just before 9 p.m. a protester at East 4th Street and Huron Road Eastpicked up a sign and threw it, injuring a restaurant patron.
Protesters became more violent as the night went on, the police chief said. At that point officers gave the crowd the order to disperse.
