Baltimore police arrested at least 12 protesters who occupied City Hall overnight, hours after a City Council committee approved the permanent appointment of interim Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis yesterday, the Baltimore Sun reports. Dozens of protesters remained on the balcony overlooking the hearing room after the meeting finished. About 30 were still there after midnight. About 3:15 a.m. many of the remaining protesters left City Hall, saying that dozens of officers had appeared in the hallway near the room where they were located with flex-cuffs. Officers warned that City Hall was closed and arrests would be made, protesters said.
