At dusk, groups have begun to splinter off into different groups of marchers where they are blocking traffic roadways. Police arrested at least two people around Houston Avenue right outside the Reisner police station downtown.

Police lines are forming in areas of disruption where groups protest and split up.

Today, a police cruiser was bashed and its windshield destroyed. No word on if anyone was arrested for the damage.
