3 arrested in protest of man’s arrest in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Three people have been arrested in Louisville, Kentucky, during a protest following a confrontation between a man and police. The Courier-Journal newspaper reported that the arrests took place Friday evening during a tense protest that blocked traffic and ended up outside Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer’s house.  One person was arrested during a confrontation between protesters and police outside a bar. A man was arrested in a parking lot and another man was arrested while live streaming the protest. Protesters were marching to call attention to a situation in which a Louisville police officer punched a man several times during an arrest last Sunday.
