DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Ten people have been arrested in Durham in the latest protest of grand jury decisions in the deaths of black men in Missouri and New York.

Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said in a statement there was a brief protest at The Streets at Southpoint mall Wednesday night, followed by the blocking of a road for about 40 minutes.

Michael said some of the protesters were kneeling or lying in the road. A truck driver was arrested after he tried to drive through the protesters.

Mitchell said Thursday that a magistrate dropped the charge against the truck driver because there was no evidence of intent to strike the pedestrians.

She said two people suffered minor injuries during the protest.
