Sheriff's Dept. Uses Force at Breonna Taylor Protests in West Hollywood
Protests against the ruling in the Breonna Taylor case continued for the third night on Friday. Yesterday's demonstration started at William S. Hart Park and continued down Sunset Bl. in West Hollywood, where Los Angeles County Sheriffs officials say the department issued an order to disperse after seeing several acts of vandalism.
Ten people were detained, including the drivers of two trucks accused of reckless driving and blocking Sunset Boulevard near San Vicente.
Six people were arrested on charges that include battery on a peace officer and attempting to free a suspect from police custody, according to LASD.
The LASD says a use-of-force investigation is underway.
More protests are planned for today. In Hollywood, a Justice for Breonna march starts this morning, and actions also scheduled in Simi Valley and Sherman Oaks.
