Zimmerman Protest Leads To 17 Arrests In California

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Protests over George Zimmerman's acquittal have led to 17 arrests in Southern California and criminal charges against three people in Oakland.
    
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says eight of the 17 people arrested Wednesday night in Victorville were juveniles. The Los Angeles Times reports most of the arrests in the city 85 miles northeast of Los Angeles were for unlawful assembly.
    
Earlier this week, Los Angeles and Oakland were flashpoints for violent reactions following Saturday's acquittal of Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
    
The San Francisco Chronicle reports two men were charged Wednesday with felony vandalism for allegedly smashing windows during the Oakland protest. A third man was charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly throwing a rock at a policeman.
