FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)- Moments became tense in Ferguson Sunday night as several people were arrested outside of the Ferguson Police Department. The arrests were a part of the latest round of protests over the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Authorities say a total of eight people were taken into custody. They were charged with failing to disperse and resisting arrest.

Nearly 150 people were protesting. According to a Ferguson police official, that crowd would not leave South Florissant Road.

Ferguson police put out a call for back up around 10 p.m. after bottles and rocks were reportedly thrown at officers. County police, highway patrol, and officers from other municipalities responded.

About an hour or so later, the arrests took place.

Those arrested were taken to the St. Ann jail for processing because the Ferguson Police Department jail is still under construction.

They were booked for the ordinance violations then released.

No injuries have been reported.
