GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Brown County Sheriff’s Office says one man has been arrested following a night of civil unrest in downtown Green Bay on May 31, which happened after a day of peaceful civil rights protests.

Authorities say they have arrested a person who they believe threw CS gas back at officers while they responded to looting at a local gas station. In a video released by Brown County Sheriff’s Office, that person is identified as Dakota Vandertie, 26, and he was arrested on June 23.

Meanwhile, authorities say they’re still working to identify a man, pictured below, who is accused of what they say are significant property damage and K9 harassment.
