The driver can then be seen hitting at least one person. Then the crowd begins to hit the vehicle and run after it.
The vehicle continued to drive and a green convertible car followed it for some time, until the police caught up with it.
The driver finally stopped about three minutes later, got out of the vehicle and turned himself in to police. The man was arrested moments later.
Back at the scene of the incident, at least one person was taken to an ambulance.
The protest follows Wednesday’s decision not to prosecute Kentucky police officers for killing Taylor.
