NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2014 -- Ten people were arrested in New York as thousands protested for a second night against the Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury's decision of not indicting a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager on Aug. 9.
 
The arrests occurred Tuesday night in Times Square, as four people were charged with resisting arrest and six with disorderly conduct, the New York Police Department said Wednesday.
 
However, police say there were no injuries and the protests were largely peaceful.
 
"As long as they remain nonviolent, and as long as they don't engage in issues that cause fear or create vandalism, we will work with them to allow them to demonstrate," said New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.
 
Protesters also targeted the Lincoln Tunnel and tried to shut down the entrance, but were blocked by police. Traffic was delayed for about half an hour, according to local media reports.
 
A grand jury finding that Officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted for the shooting of unarmed Michael Brown in Ferguson triggered protests in many cities across the United States.
