Arrests made in second night of anti-Trump protests in Austin

Protesters marched in the streets of Downtown Austin on Thursday in protest of President-elect Donald Trump.

Around 9 p.m. at least two protesters were arrested, one for shoving an officer. 

The group of about 200 marched toward the Travis County Justice Complex and State Capitol before going back toward Sixth Street before 10 p.m.

APD told KVUE that the protests technically are not legal, but they will continue to allow it as long as the group keeps moving and does not go onto the highway. APD set up a row of buses where Fifth Street meets I-35 to prevent the group from marching onto the interstate.

There were also anti-Trump protests in Austin Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night and on Texas State University campus Thursday.

This is a developing story. Updates to follow.
