Updated, 7 a.m. Feb. 26 — Three people were arrested toward the end of Saturday’s LGBTQ rally in downtown St. Louis, according to the city Police Department and event organizer Keith Rose. Police said charges are pending against the three, but wouldn’t specify what those were, and that one person had been released on bond.
Rose said those arrested, two transgender women and a man, don’t have an attorney yet.
Video allegedly showing the arrests were posted on a couple of social media sites. They show the crowd walking toward and chanting at officers on bicycles. At least one person ends up on the ground and is restrained by officers as people in the crowd pull on her. The crowd soon begins chanting “Who do you serve, who do you protect.” The video that had been on Facebook was no longer posted Sunday morning.
