Memphis protester resists when placed into custody for blocking traffic and threatening police

33-year-old Likisha Clark was charged with refusing to obey orders given to her during a protest while inciting others to not listen to the police. When police were instructed to place her into custody she resisted.

On May 30th, police were on Beale Street and Main Street during the protests with approximately one hundred to two hundred people obstructing traffic. Loudly the protesters were encouraging others to display violent behavior towards the police that were stationed there, via report. Close to midnight Colonel Burnett used his PA system to give the order to disperse in lieu of the Memphis Police Department’s policy regarding unlawful assembly.

She was taken to Regional One hospital to check to be cleared for anything medical and then placed into Jail East.

Likisha Clark was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. She was later released on her own recognizance.
