(Minneapolis, MN) -- An outspoken Minneapolis activist has been charged after police say he got into an altercation with an officer. Authorities say 55-year-old Al Flowers is accused of assaulting the officer at his home early Saturday, while a warrant was being issued for the arrest of a juvenile inside. Both men involved sustained non-life-threatening injuries. As recently as last week, Flowers spoke at a meeting about the rise in violence in North Minneapolis.
