SALISBURY, Md.- Three men protesting the deaths of unarmed black men in New York and Ferguson, Missouri at the hands of police were arrested in Salisbury just before the annual Christmas parade was about to begin. 

Shortly after 1 p.m., about 50 protesters marched from Wicomico Middle School on East Main Street to the parade route. According to police, when the Christmas parade got under way 45 minutes later, several protesters locked arms and blocked the parade route.

The Salisbury Police Department said officers asked the protesters to move to the sidewalk, but some refused and were arrested.

James Kelly Fleming, 37, of Baltimore, was charged with disturbing the peace obstructing and hindering, resisting arrest and intentional interference with the lawful arrest of another.

Jermain Terrell Walker, 40, of Baltimore, was charged with intentional interference with the arrest of another, second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, obstructing and hindering, and resisting arrest.

Brandon Lamont Moore, 22, of Salisbury, was charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, failure to obey lawful order and resisting arrest. Police say they found a blow torch on his person, but no related charges have been filed.

According to police, one officer and one of those arrested suffered minor injuries. Bother were treated and released from Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton said he understands and supports the right to protest, but says he was disappointed protesters chose the parade as the time and place.
