See videos from State Senator Marilyn Moore in aftermath of Jayson Negron protest. An exhausted Moore posted several, the one above early Friday morning, with updates trying to get answers from the police following arrests. Most of those arrested were not Bridgeport residents.
From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
Police on Friday afternoon released a summary of the incident report.
“At approximately 8:10 pm the remaining protesters at Walgreens became increasingly agitated and threw a bottle at officers on scene. Officers stayed in position and looked for recognizable Bridgeport community members who could assist in a dialogue. No one was visible. Another glass object was thrown at an officer, and the crowd remained agitated and yelling obscenities at the police officers. For public safety purposes, BPD informed the unruly protesters that they had five minutes to disperse due to the unruly assembly. The crowd did not comply and continued to be unruly and grew louder. Officers moved in fairly quickly to maintain safety and detained 12 individuals. All of the individuals detained we arrested because they did not comply or disperse,” the summary states.
“While at BPD headquarters, an arresting officer was advised that one of the detainees was a member of the press. The reporter wearing plain street clothes and no clearly visible identifying markers other than an ID name badge was released without a summons, as she was not part of the organizers,” the summary continued.
Arrested were: Thomas Bostian, of New Haven, Britney Brevard, of New Haven, Kerry Ellington, of New Haven, Jenna Fu, of Bridgeport, Kiana McDavid, of Hartford, Sam Morbidelli, of New Hven, Kacey Perkins, of Fairfield, Sarah Pimenta, of Milford, Brenna Regan, of Fairfield, Maria Sandoval of New Haven and Michael Merli of Bridgeport.
