Hedy Epstein, a prominent 90-year-old Holocaust survivor, has been taken into custody by police in St. Louis over her protesting of the Michael Brown shooting, reports KMOV's Chris Stanford.
Epstein was arrested for blocking an entrance to the Nixon building in St. Louis. The St. Louis Business Journal reports that nine protesters were arrested at the building at 4:40 p.m. Eastern time. The group were chanting slogans such as "Face one, face all!" and "Who do you serve? Who do you protect?"
She was released a few hours later and will have to face court on October 21 for a charge of failing to disperse. In an interview after her arrest she said that the "Ferguson police are deliberately inciting violence."
