Tensions remain high in Kenosha as curfew continues for another night
KENOSHA COUNTY, Wis. - At the same park where tear gas was deployed and projectiles were thrown at officers this week, law enforcement officers have taken aggressive measures to prevent any more violence from happening.
A video taken just before 7 p.m. Wednesday shows a line of people in handcuffs at the Speedway Gas Station on Washington and 30th in Kenosha.
A large black bus in the parking lot had a gas can in front of it, a swarm of law enforcement officers and at least seven people handcuffed.
A public safety alert went out asking for businesses to turn off fuel pumps in the area.
Just after 7 p.m. at Civic Center Park, video shows a U-Haul truck starting to drive away as law enforcement open the door and handcuff the driver.
An armored vehicle quickly came to the scene.
A curfew went into effect an hour earlier tonight at 7 p.m. and that will remain until Sunday.
