LAPD: All arrested in protests released by dinner

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Police Department says demonstrators who can't make bail after being arrested during Ferguson protests will be released in time for Thanksgiving dinner.

Commander Andrew Smith says Thursday that about 90 people are still jailed and will be released on their own recognizance without having to post $500 bail.

Because of the holiday, many of those arrested would have otherwise remained jailed until Monday, when courts reopen.

Smith says 338 people have been arrested in the past three days for failure to disperse and disrupting the peace.

Of those, 145 were arrested late Wednesday.

Thirty-five people were also arrested in Oakland following a march that deteriorated into vandalism.
