Protesters Block I-277 | VIDEO

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Watch the moment when protesters walked out and blocked I-277 while WCCB NEWS @ TEN was live on air Thursday night.

WCCB’s Amy Cowman was with the large group of protesters who marched from Romare Bearden Park along on S.Mint St, past Bank of America Stadium, onto W. Morehead St, then down the banking onto I-277. Traffic can be seen slowing down as people started blocking the roads but it doesn’t look like any vehicles were trapped there. Police cruisers arrive followed by police in riot gear who push the crowd back up the banking.
