“What started as a peaceful protest accelerated quickly into a form of riot behavior. Participants refused to disperse from blocking roadways, they threw rocks and bottles at officers, attempted to shut down our interstate system, and they vandalized and looted businesses,” said Director Michael Rallings. “I am extremely proud and thankful for the professionalism shown by our officers, the Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies, THP, and the National Guard.
