Several people who clashed with police Tuesday morning early this morning were arrested after confrontation on Quail and West streets. Police say they were hurling rocks and bricks at police officers. The clash occurred shortly after midnight and followed a standoff around the city's public safety building on Henry Johnson Boulevard.

All of this came after a peaceful show of civil disobedience in the streets of Albany throughout the day on Monday. Albany police chief Eric Hawkins met yesterday with protesters and told them he takes reports of police brutality very seriously. We are joined by the Chief of Police for the city of Albany Eric Hawkins.
