1. Police release

On May 14, 2019, at 1:30 pm, the Little Rock Police Department was notified of a protest at the Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, located at 224 S. Spring Street. During the protest a portion of 3rd Street was blocked by protesters, not allowing motorist to travel in this area. Officers provided multiple verbal warnings for protestors to return to the sidewalk and to exit the roadway. Upon providing these warnings, the protestors returned to the sidewalk and began walking towards Broadway Street.

The group of protestors continued walking in the area using sidewalks and crossing lanes from 3rd Street to Broadway. While walking in the crossing lanes, the protestors walked in a manner that impeded traffic flow. Shortly after, the protestors walked north on Broadway Street in the direction of Markham Street. While at the intersection of Broadway and Mark- ham, a group of protestors walked east bound on Markham crossing Broadway Street while Broadway traffic signals were green for motorist to travel north and south bound. At this point, the group of protestors again began to impede the flow of traffic for motorist. The decision was made by City Administration that the protestors would not be allowed to disrupt traffic and for them to be arrested for Disorderly Conduct.

A total of ten (10) protestors were arrested and transported to the Pulaski County Jail for processing. During the course of the transport, one suspect complained of feeling ill. Medical personnel (MEMS) responded to the Pulaski County Jail to examine the suspect. Once examinef by medical staff, this suspect was also processed into the Pulaski County Jail. All ten protestors were charged with Disorderly Conduct.
