PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - At least two dozen activists in Portland have filed complaints against the city’s police as a result of last week’s Ferguson protests and other events.

Officials said more than 25 complaints were filed Monday with the city auditor’s Independent Police Review Division.

About thirty protesters rallying in chilly weather at City Hall said they were angry about how police handled a march Saturday.

Ten people were arrested at that march after officers lobbed “flash bang” grenades to disperse the crowd near a central transit area.

In a statement, Mayor Charlie Hales said the city won’t tolerate vandalism, walking onto highways, or interfering with public transportation.

The protests come after a grand jury decided not to indict a white police officer who fatally shot a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.
