A protester arrested outside the courthouse after a mistrial was declared in the trial of police officer William Porter has been released.

Twenty-one-year-old Darius Rosebrough, an activist also known as Kwame Rose, said by phone Thursday that he was released around 3:45 a.m.

A 16-year-old juvenile was also arrested, but it isn’t known if he has been released.

Maj. Sabrina Tapp-Harper, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore Sheriff’s Office, said both were charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a law enforcement officer’s command, and disturbing the peace by using a bullhorn outside the courthouse while court was in session.
