Meanwhile on Monday, police detained several protesters in St. Louis at a planned rally in front of the courthouse to mark the death of Michael Brown one year ago. Small group of protestors remained in front of the courthouse Monday afternoon after others were detained.

The office of St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch on Monday announced charges that include five counts of armed criminal action, four counts of first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer and one firearms charge against Harris. All 10 charges are felonies. He is currently being held on a $250,000 cash bond.
