3 Protesters Arrested in Times Square During Tyre Nichols Demonstrations

Three protesters were arrested in Times Square on Tuesday night during a demonstration against police brutality and racism.

The NYPD identified the three protesters as Tyre Nichols, 24, Jazmine Mason, 20, and Jayden Williams, 19. They were arrested after they allegedly refused to disperse from the area and blocked traffic.

The demonstration was held in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis police custody.

According to the NYPD, the protesters were charged with disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly. They were arraigned Wednesday morning and released on their own recognizance.

The demonstration in Times Square was one of many around the country that have been held in response to the death of George Floyd. The protests have highlighted police brutality and systemic racism in the United States.

The three protesters arrested in Times Square have been released, but the issue of police brutality and racism remains a major issue in the United States. The protests are expected to continue in the coming days and weeks.
