Influential Black Lives Matter activist, DeRay Mckesson is one of over 100 individuals arrested late Saturday into early Sunday after a night of protests and unrest in Baton Rouge. The tension comes following a week of national protests calling for police accountability after the deaths of Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, rounding out the week with the killings of officers in Dallas. Images of McKesson being arrested circulated on social media as he is seen cooperating with officers.

He was charged with “simple obstruction of a highway of commerce” and released on Sunday afternoon.

Mckesson posted about the experience via Twitter, thanking his supporters.

Once everyone got word that DeRay was okay, the party began.

A nondiscriminatory, peaceful gathering.

Some came bearing gifts.

And the DJ played all the jamz.

With a few special dedications.

The VIP section was LIT, too.

Secruity was extremely tight.

Hats off to the chef.

And plenty of drinks flowing.

I made a guest appearance.

But had to dip early.
