Police arrest 140 minimum-wage protesters in K.C., St. Louis
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police in St. Louis and Kansas City said they made roughly 140 arrests of protesters who pressed for a $15-per-hour minimum wage.
KSHB-TV said Kansas City police confirmed at least 110 people were arrested Tuesday while they blocked a street. St. Louis police took nearly 30 protesters into custody after they staged a sit-in on a street near a fast-food restaurant.
St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson had warned protesters who blocked traffic would be arrested.
Protesters earlier Tuesday blocked a McDonald's drive-through in downtown St. Louis for about a half-hour, and managers had to close the dining area.
The protests were among hundreds across the country seeking a $15 minimum wage. Protesters also want a union for fast-food workers.
