According to the Washington Post:

McKesson was taken into custody around 11 p.m. in what two fellow activists who witnessed it described as a physically violent arrest.

“The officers won’t give their names,” said Brittany Packnett, a co-founder with McKesson of the group Campaign Zero, a prominent activist collective. “He was clearly targeted.”

She later tweeted that 100 people were arrested in Baton Rouge. There was no immediate official confirmation of that figure.

Packnett said McKesson was using his smartphone to live-stream the ongoing protests when police began forcibly dispersing the crowds. As McKesson and a group of about eight people walked down the street, an officer approached him and told him that he had been “flagged” and that if he left the sidewalk again he would be arrested.

Moments later, she said, two officers forcefully arrested McKesson.

Here’a a video of his arrest posted to Periscope:

The Post said that #FreeDeray had over 100,000 tweets before dawn.
