Monday afternoon the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office tweeted that they are aware of concerns regarding the “level of force” used by a deputy involved in a curfew related arrest at the Hall of Justice on Sunday night.

"We conduct reviews of all use of force incidents and this incident will be no exception," LSO said in a tweet. "That review is underway."

We believe the arrest LSO is referring to is the one in the video above, which was captured during 10/11 NOW’s live coverage of the protest around 8:45 p.m.

The curfew began at 8 p.m., but law enforcement initially let protesters continue to peacefully protest. About 45 minutes later officers and deputies pushed forward and began making arrests. A few protesters could be seen fighting back. Tear gas was deployed. It's not clear what caused the escalation.
