According to various reports on Twitter, St. Louis Alderman Antonio French, who has been tweeting from the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, over the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown has been arrested. I called Ferguson's police department tonight to ask whether they could confirm French had been arrested. I was transferred to the jail, which isn't quite a yes but is far from a no. I left a message with the jail but haven't gotten a response yet. Given all the reports of arrests tonight, it may take a while. I'll call back in the morning.
