More Than 100 Arrests In Houston

Houston police made more than 100 arrests as protests broke out for a second night on Saturday night.

The protests took place in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Police say those arrested will be facing a variety of charges. Officers were out in force and will be working 12 hour shifts this weekend to provide full staffing response.

Floyd's body will be brought back to Houston, where a local funeral home is handling arrangements. Mayor Sylvester Turner said Saturday that Floyd grew up in Houston and it's there he'll return. Floyd's death Monday in Minneapolis police custody has sparked days of protests and rioting in cities from coast to coast. While the details for the services have not yet been finalized, the funeral home said a public visitation will be held in Minnesota later this week.
