Kaulbert “Red” Wilson and a 15-year-old boy were the only two people charged during a protest that saw some police officers walk with the marchers. The rally lasted until about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to police.

Officers say Wilson ran across multiple police cruisers and encouraged others to flip a cruiser with an officer inside. They say he also broke a car window, forcefully removed a driver, and punched that person in the head.

Police tweeted video of the assault Wilson was arrested for in hopes people will be able to help identify others involved.
