“Later on into the night, we began experiencing civil unrest through the destruction of our businesses and community,” police said.
A Target shopping center was burglarized and the windows of the Slack Auto Parts store were broken, police said. Six police cars were also vandalized, according to the department.
Nine people were taken into custody on Saturday night, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
On Sunday night, after protesters gathered for a second round of demonstrations, the sheriff’s office arrested a man who “used paint to vandalize the Old Joe statue on Gainesville Square.”
The man, identified as 24-year-old Tyler Dalton Moye, is charged with interference with government property, second-degree criminal damage to property and obstruction. He was released from the Hall County Jail Monday on a $14,350 bond.
The other people who were arrested face charges ranging from disorderly conduct to public drunkenness. No injuries were reported, police said.
