After Baltimore's curfew was imposed last night, news cameras captured law enforcement's swift and shocking arrest of a demonstrator. 

During a CNN segment, Joseph Kent is seen with his hands up, telling the media that they need to disperse. Kent, 21, gained notoriety last year for his role in Baltimore protests of Michael Brown's fatal shooting in Ferguson, Mo. Moments later, a National Guard vehicle drove forward and officers in riot gear rushed Kent. The humvee obstructed much of the encounter, but it was clear that Kent was whisked away inside of it. 

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo described the events: 

He wasn't almost hit by that armored vehicle. They drove the vehicle up and when it got close enough to create a wedge, they ran out an grabbed him, pinned him against that and arrested him. They must have perceived, rightly or wrongly, that he was part of this group that was throwing things at them. When he tried to come up the street the first time with his hands up, they were shooting the pepper bullets at him, and he ran back with this other group. He then reapproached again—they let him come, he came across, he told all of the media, "You need to disperse" when, again, this curfew is not about us, it's about whoever was creating unrest last night. And then, as he was walking back and forth, the humvee came and they used it as an opportunity, and he's being taken into custody right now, apparently.

Outraged viewers took to Twitter to voice their anger, and question Kent's whereabouts:

Attorney Stephen Beatty tweeted early this morning that Kent is at Baltimore Central Booking, where he is safe. 

According to Mashable, Beatty is willing to represent Kent pro bono.
