(Ferguson, MO) -- A night of relatively peaceful protest in Ferguson, Missouri is now turning tense. Police began trying to clear parking lots just after midnight local time when a group of what were termed agitators began confronting officers. Bottles were reportedly thrown at police and media at the scene were also reportedly threatened. There have also been reports of some journalists being arrested as the problematic protestors tried to hide among the media. Before the tense situation began, crowds were smaller and very little violence or arrests were reported. It's been more than a week since unarmed teenager Michael Brown was fatally shot by officer Darren Wilson.
