FERGUSON, MO (KTVI)- Ferguson Chief of Police Tom Jackson marched with about 60 protesters as they chanted outside the Ferguson police station Thursday night.

Several feet away from the chief there was a lot of movement that sparked some action by police. At this point, we believed that a few people simply tripped and fell while marching, based on what a FOX 2 reporter saw.   But police officers did rushed in to protect the chief.

No one was reportedly injured, but at least 4 people taken into custody.

The chief was quickly escorted back into the police station by his officers.

A video of Chief Jackson apologizing for some of the things that have happened in Ferguson was released on Thursday.

The unrest stems from the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. He was shot to death by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

It has sparked weeks of protests and some violence.

A grand jury is now considering charges against officer Wilson.
