Several people were arrested Wednesday night during a protest in Brooklyn in the wake of the decision to not charge upstate New York cops in the death of Daniel Prude, according to police and witnesses.
Dozens of protesters marched through McCarren Park in Williamsburg around 7 p.m., prompting a large police response with about 300 cops.
Witnesses told The Post at least nine people were arrested. Police confirmed some arrests were made.
Several protesters began attacking pedestrians and spray-painting a cab on South 4th Street and Driggs Avenue near the Williamsburg Bridge, the witnesses recalled.
Videos on Citizen App shows large crowds at the scene, and a police chopper can be heard hovering over the area.

The protest came a day after a grand jury voted not to indict the Rochester police officers who were involved in the death of Daniel Prude, a black man who was suffocated while he was naked and having a mental breakdown on March 23.
He was left brain dead and died a week later.
