Protesters Disrupt EBR Metro Council Meeting

The plan was to 'shut down the Metro Council,' but it's clear the only ones shut down were the protesters.

At Wednesday's Baton Rouge Metro Council meeting, several people used the public comment period to call for the police officers involved in Alton Sterling's death to be fired.

As each protester took the mic to make their case, though, police officers escorted them out of the building.

One protester was arrested for disturbing the peace and resisting an officer.
