No arrests reported following NYC protests over Breonna Taylor verdict

Police reported no arrests in connection to the wave of Wednesday night protests across the Big Apple — in which a large crowd blocked traffic on the Manhattan Bridge — following a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to clear Louisville cops of wrongdoing in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

About 600 demonstrators started out at the Barclays Center Wednesday night — and scores more joined as the protesters clogged the Manhattan Bridge.

“NYC really came out for Breonna Taylor tonight,” tweeted Jasper Nathaniel, along with a video clip from the scene. “We shut down the Manhattan Bridge, and every single driver — surrounded by protesters and stuck for an indefinite amount of time — is honking, clapping, chanting in solidarity. Wild.”

The protesters then converged with another group on the Lower East Side, growing to more than 1,000 strong as they marched south on Broadway.

Another group of marchers also congregated on the Upper East Side.

As of Thursday morning, cops reported no arrests, property damage or other significant incidents during the protests.
