More than 80 arrests were made Sunday night as protesters roamed the streets of St. Louis after a former police officer was acquitted Friday in the death of a black man, according to CNN.

Law enforcement used riot gear in an attempt to disperse protesters, arresting those who defied orders.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens condemned those who rioted and looted, saying, “If you're going to riot we're going to cuff you ... Violence and vandalism is not protest. It is a crime.”

Footage captured by Fox News showed rioters antagonizing police by stomping on a police cruiser and later burning an American flag.
