Thursday night saw more questionable arrests in Ferguson, Missouri, after police intervened in a demonstration in front of the local police station.
Residents of Ferguson continue to protest the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown Jr. in August. Darren Wilson, the six-year police force veteran who opened fire on the 18-year-old, has yet to be charged. A grand jury is determining whether to indict Wilson in the shooting.
According to the Washington Post, police asked the protestors to quiet down and obey an 11 p.m. noise ordinance before the arrests.
A Ferguson Police Department official declined to confirm how many arrests were made, but activists and residents took to Twitter to document the interactions. Many reported witnessing the detainment of at least 10 individuals.

Offensive words?! The police have called protesters every name in the book but their government name. Are we being forreal?!

Jail support is aware of the 11 arrested tonight. We are working on their release. As always, we condemn the attacks by the #Ferguson PD.

CNN freelance journalist, Mary Moore, was also arrested.
Charges against those arrested weren’t immediately clear.
The latest protest comes hours after police records revealed what Officer Wilson was doing just moments before he fatally shot Brown.
According to KMOV:
An hour and a half before the shooting, records indicate Wilson was at the Park Ridge apartments, not far from the shooting scene, responding to a call from a woman who told police a man threatened to shoot her.
“I remember the lady talking to the police, she was giving a description of the guy,” said resident Dana Murphy.
According to records, 15 minutes after Wilson left the Park Ridge apartments, he received a sick call for a baby who police believe had trouble breathing while coughing. After responding to that call, Wilson drove up to Brown, and confronted him about walking in the street before the fatal shooting.
