“Our message is getting out to protesters,” Lieutenant Kevin Knapp of the Atlanta Police Department told reporters.

Knapp said that “99. 9%” have been peacefully protesting, which police support, and that “it’s the 1% that show up later in the day (that) ruin the message. ”

Some protesters began to turn around -- but "unfortunately what happened is, you saw a small group of them break off, surround a police car, and that's when officers were called in for backup and the situation turned ugly," said CNN Correspondent Jason Carroll, reporting from the scene.

"It was once (protesters) got to that one point at Cadman plaza, this is where police said, 'We're drawing the line. '"

Protests have been peaceful all day, he said -- earlier today, crowds were singing and cheering together, and the mood was light.
