Charlotte Protesters Say They Were Boxed-in With Tear Gas

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says it’s investigating after a number of protesters accused them of boxing them into a street with tear gas.




Video from the incident shows a number of protesters crowded in the middle of a street with tear gas coming in on both sides.


The incident came after police ordered crowds to disperse.


Earlier in the evening, things remained peaceful with nearly 6,000 demonstrators in attendence, organized largely by the NAACP and Kidz Fed Up. 

Charlotte, unlike other North Carolina cities, did not have a curfew in place.
