Beck says only three people were arrested in protests across Los Angeles following the announcement that a Missouri police officer would not be indicted in the fatal shooting of a young black man. Beck said Tuesday there were no injuries and no property damage during hours-long demonstrations.

Police Chief Charlie Beck says only three people were arrested in protests across Los Angeles following the announcement that a Missouri police officer would not be indicted in the fatal shooting of a young black man.

Beck said Tuesday there were no injuries and no property damage during hours-long demonstrations.

Police watched as protesters marched through streets, blocked intersections and entered freeways. Beck says officers did fire foam rounds to keep demonstrators from returning to a freeway.

Beck says the three arrests were for assaulting an officer, failure to disperse and public drunkenness.

The demonstrators chanted "hands up, don't shoot" in memory of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old shot to death by a police officer Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Missouri.

Beck says the LAPD will facilitate further lawful protests.
