Protesters and rioters took tumbles during Friday evening’s protests around the country, videos captured and posted online reveal.
During riots in Brooklyn, New York, over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a rioter was standing in the road when a New York City Police Department (NYPD) vehicle opened its car door to shove him out of the way.
Rioters were apparently throwing cement at the NYPD police vehicles as they drove away.

Likewise, a woman in Houston, Texas, was trampled during a protest as she held a sign, and a white police horse toppled her from behind. Protesters watching the incident immediately began throwing objects at the officers.

Riots and protests first started this week in Minneapolis as a response to resident George Floyd dying in police custody. Footage of the incident showed an officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeling on Floyd’s neck as he laid on the ground in handcuffs.
