Black Lives Matter protestors started a fire Wednesday night just outside the Rockhill Police Department building in South Carolina. This was in retaliation for the arrest of a man that police allege was dealing drugs.

A woman on a megaphone was reportedly heard instructing protestors to block the road if firefighters arrived. Later, police cleared a path for firefighters to extinguish the fire.

Rick Price, the man arrested for Possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and marijuana, was arrested earlier that afternoon according to a police report. Police already had him under surveillance, and pulled him over when he made an illegal turn. Because of his priors, police involved their K-9 unit to sniff out the presence of drugs.

Price’s brother Travis Price was also arrested. He arrived on the scene in an attempt to retrieve his things from the car. Police charged Travis with hindering police. Officers did not deploy weapons or their K-9 unit on either brother.
