Starsky Wilson, former co-chair of the Ferguson Commission, is arrested with other protesters who entered Interstate 64 (Highway 40) and marched from the Compton Avenue overpass to the Jefferson Avenue exit on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017 in St. Louis as part of the ongoing demonstrations against the acquittal of a white former police officer in the 2011 killing of a black man. Sgt. Brian Rossomanno told protesters, who asked to leave the area, that no order of dispersal was given and that they were being arrested for entering the interstate.
