Dozens Arrested After St. Louis Businesses Were Vandalized, Police Say

Police in St. Louis arrested more than 80 people and confiscated at least five weapons after violence broke out following peaceful protests, the police chief said Monday.

"People setting out to do damage are being arrested, and these criminals we've arrested should be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," said Acting Police Commissioner Lawrence O'Toole during a press conference early Monday morning. "We're in control, this is our city and we are going to protect it."

The protests are in response to a recent not guilty verdict for an ex-police officer who was charged with first-degree murder.
