After about two hours, two members of the group spoke to the police chief and they were allowed to continue walking.
Around the time they began walking again, police put a second demonstrator in handcuffs.
A larger group of about 200 protesters had begun marching around 12:30 p.m., intentionally heading outside of a designated parade route without the necessary permit.
