Five people were taken into custody during a protest Friday evening at Arden Fair Mall, according to Sacramento police.
Protesters gathered outside the mall at 3 p.m. to join a national demonstration called "Hands up, don't shop!" -- a protest aimed at the grand jury's decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as Black Friday shopping.
Law enforcement, including Sacramento police and California Highway Patrol, were on hand for crowd and traffic control, making sure protesters weren't in the streets or blocking shoppers.
While the protest started peacefully, it got more heated as it went on. Demonstrators chanted, carried signs and walked from the street and around Arden Fair Mall.
