I was just at the corner of Hewitt and Washtenaw. As I approached the intersection on foot I saw a large group of protesters in the intersection. Police were pulling up quickly to the scene. Minutes later the protesters began walking down Hewitt toward the EMU Convocation Center. More police and an ambulance were headed in that direction also.
I spoke to a witness who identified himself as Jr. He told me that minutes earlier the intersection was blocked with BLM protesters. He stated, and I'm paraphrasing, a woman in a car attempted to drive through the intersection and hit or bumped a female protester. Apparently protesters began pouring water on top of the woman's car. Jr reported that someone may have been chased down the street by a protester. This last bit of information from the witness is vague.
This is an ongoing situation.
UPDATE: A video of this incident was posted to YouTube late Tuesday by Michael Taylor.
