VIDEO THREAD: Tonight, riot police in #ElizabethCityNC pushed in to arrest #AndrewBrown protesters for violating an 8pm curfew at about about 10:30pm.

This clip shows the first couple arrests.

I had been livestreaming since about 6pm, and no violence or vandalism had occurred.
Police slowly pushed forward against the crowd, while an arrest squad grabbed a third individual.

Police and the man briefly struggled during the arrest.

One water bottle was thrown toward police (which missed) which was the only time I saw something like that all night.
Across the street, a fourth person was arrested. I didn't see what led to it, but it most likely was a similar arrest for being out (without being credentialed media) past curfew.
