Chattanooga arrest

Four people were arrested October 22, 2014, while protesting street violence and police brutality at the intersection of Main Street and Market Street in Chattanooga.

About a dozen protesters were marching with Concerned Citizens for Justice as part of a national day of protests and were arrested when they entered the intersection and blocked traffic, the group said on its Facebook page.

Ash-Lee Henderson, 29, Janelle Jackson, 34, Michael Heath, 22, and Madison Dillard, 20, were all arrested and charged with inciting to riot and obstructing a highway. Jackson was also charged with resisting arrest.

The Chattanooga Police Department reported that it monitored the event and asked the individuals to clear the blocked roadway to ensure the safety of all citizens, including those protesting. [1]
