WAUWATOSA — Police in Wisconsin arrested a bicyclist after a physical struggle during another night of protests over a prosecutor’s decision not to charge an officer who fatally shot a Black teen in February.
Police in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa blocked residential streets Tuesday night and redirected a caravan of cars and a small group of protesters while announcing the gathering was an unlawful assembly.

According to a press release from the Wauwatosa Police Department, two officers sustained minor injuries during the arrest and dispersment of the crowd.
The bicyclist that was arrested is a 28-year-old man from West Allis, police said.
A felony charge of resisting an officer – causing soft tissue injury will be presented to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office.
The protest was the latest in a string of demonstrations since a prosecutor cleared Wauwatosa Officer Joseph Mensah, who also is Black, in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Alvin Cole.
