At least 100 people were arrested in Freddie Gray protests that spread to New York City Wednesday night, ABC News reports.

The protest, which began in Union Square, was reportedly comprised of at least 1,000 people and spread across the city, shutting down parts of the Holland Tunnel, the West Side Highway and Times Square.

CBS reports most of the arrests stemmed from protesters marching on the street and not the sidewalk, although there were some reports of people throwing bottles at officers.

There were too many arrests to track on the ground – some of them more dramatic than others, CBS2’s Weijia Jiang reported.

Jiang reported she and her crew got jostled around running in the middle of the action, and said the confrontation was more physical than those seen in Baltimore on Tuesday – the day after the riots.

Three officers were seen carrying one man, using every ounce of his energy to resist. Another handcuffed man was crouched in the street with his mouth gagged, and police also put several women into custody.
