Some Vandalism, No Arrests in Downtown L.A. Protest


LOS ANGELES (CNS) - No arrests were immediately reported this morning in connection with a protest in downtown Los Angeles over the death of Breonna Taylor and a grand jury's decision not to charge the Louisville Police Department officers directly for her killing.

The protest and march began around 6 p.m. Wednesday near Union Station and traveled along downtown streets before returning to Union Station around 11 p.m.

Video posted to social media showed a protestor using an object to vandalize government property and someone in the crowd later pinned the vandal to the ground, stopping the attempted destruction.

NBC4's Robert Kovacik posted video on Twitter showing vandalism to a sign for the Los Angeles Police Department's Ronald F. Deaton Civic Auditorium. A line was spray painted across a portion of the lettering and large black Xs were painted over the word ``police.''

Protesters left the area around midnight.
