Confrontations between police and protesters continued last night in Ferguson, Mo. after the suburb's police chief apologized to Michael Brown's family six weeks after his death. The 18-year-old was shot and killed by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9.
The Associated Press reports that Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson stood outside of the police station in plain clothes last night, promising that relations between police and civilians would improve in the wake of Brown's death. Jackson then proceeded to march with protesters, but his presence reportedly triggered a fight about 20 feet behind Jackson. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch adds that one person was arrested.
Earlier in the day, Jackson apologized to Brown's family in a video was released by the Devin James Group. In addition, Jackson took "full responsibility" for any mistakes made in the initial handling of the Brown case, while maintaining that he "[looked] forward" to working with residents to solve issues within the town.
This latest altercation comes just a day after protests resumed in Ferguson after a memorial built near the spot where Brown died was destroyed by fire. According to the Associated Press, the Ferguson Police Department has not responded to requests for comment on last night's incident.
