JACKSONVILLE, FL (July 10, 2016) - Today, at about 1:00 pm, demonstrators gathered for a planned event at the Duval County Courthouse. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was there to provide for the safety of the protesters and the public. The protest was peaceful, as approximately 300-400 people moved from the Courthouse to City Hall. Some continued on to the Prime Osborn Convention Center.
A group of protestors then marched through downtown, again with officers accompanying them and ensuring the safety of the protestors, as well as the public and providing for proper traffic flow.
As a group reached the Landing, three individuals left the group and moved toward the Main Street Bridge. They failed to remain on the sidewalk, as they were instructed several times to do, and blocked traffic on the bridge. Their actions created a danger to their safety and the motorists on the bridge. They were arrested on the charges of Obstructing a Highway and Resisting without Violence.
Following the arrest the protesters moved to the Police Memorial Building and the Pre Trial Detention Facility. The JSO will continue to be present at this protest, again, working to ensure the safety of those involved in any demonstration, as well as providing for traffic control and the safety of the general public.
The three individuals arrested are:
-      Mina Salahshor          White/Female                     05/22/1998
-      Dominique Smith       Black/Male                        12-14-1990
-      Joseph Smith              Black/Male                        11-02-1994 (Also charged with Driving While License Suspended for a prior warrant)
