Police say they used a stun gun on two protesters after they resisted arrest. Protesters were walking through downtown streets and police say they ignored orders to stay on the sidewalk and were causing traffic problems.

The two arrested were 21-year-old Emmanuel Jones of Florissant and 34-year-old Kristine Hendrix of St. Louis.
