The three protesters allegedly interfered with officers who were attempting to arrest another protester who was wanted for an alleged assault. That person was able to get away, police said. 

The protests marked the one-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer who was convicted of his murder last month.
