FERGUSON, MO (KPLR) - More clashes between police and protesters in Ferguson Monday evening resulted in the arrest of nearly two dozen people.

Police first responded to West Florissant about 8 p.m. Monday to find some protestors in the road. Authorities talked with protestors and got them out of the road.

However, the situation continued to develop throughout the night between police and protesters. The St. Louis County Police Department said throughout the night, some protesters would periodically throw frozen water bottles, other bottles, and even rocks at police.

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar was on the scene last night trying to de-escalate the situation with protesters. Belmar was put in charge of policing in Ferguson after St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger declared a state of emergency.

When it over, a total of 23 people were arrested in the latest round of protests. The demonstrations ended about 12:15 a.m. Tuesday.

There were no shootings, shots fired, burglaries, looting, or property damage reported. No injuries were reported, although one county police officer was hit by a small chunk of concrete. His protective vest prevented him from being hurt.

Police also did not use any smoke or tear gas.
