The gathering started in Brooklyn as a celebration of King’s legacy. Some people from that group then marched across the Brooklyn Bridge and later clashed with police in lower Manhattan.
Videos posted by Chris Gelardi from the scene of the protest show dozens of helmeted officers trying to clear an area near City Hall.
The protest and arrests came days after New York state Attorney General Letitia James sued the New York Police Department over their actions during demonstrations that followed George Floyd’s killing last year.
