About 70 protesters arrested at Minnesota governor's mansion

About 70 protesters arrested at Minnesota governor's mansion

At least 69 people have been arrested outside the governor's residence since Tuesday as part of an effort to reopen that section of Summit Avenue in St. Paul.

"The Saint Paul Police Department remains committed to allowing people to make their voices heard-as long as they do not block streets and sidewalks, jeopardize public safety or damage public and private property", the department said on its Facebook page. Protesters pack up sleeping bags, bedding and other belongings after police told them them must remove their belongings from the street and sidewalk in front of the Governor's residence on Summit Avenue in St. Paul.

St. Paul police said more than 20 people had been arrested for unlawful assembly.

Officers had cleared the area before on July 18 but protesters had come back into the road on Sunday.

Shortly before 11 a.m., something broke out and officers arrested an unknown number of protesters. Then at 10:45 a.m., a group of officers rushed across the street to the front of the Governor's Residence and soon forcibly arrested five people.

Police arrested or cited people for charges ranging from obstructing legal process to disorderly conduct to unlawful assembly to public nuisance. Police have made more than 150 arrests during protests since Castile's death. It is the second time in nine days that police have tried to open the busy street, the target of round-the-clock protests since a July 6 police shooting.

Protestors outside the Governor's residence.

The protests and marches related to the shooting in the nearby suburb have cost the city of St. Paul more than $1 million already, officials have said.

The size of the protest crowds outside Gov. Mark Dayton's residence have gone up and down since the day after Castile's death. A Dayton spokesman says the governor was not involved in the decision to clear the street.
