At least 4,100 people have been arrested across the US in the days since George Floyd’s death, according to an Associated Press tally.

Reports say the tally includes everything from looting and blocking highways to breaking curfew.

Curfews are in place in a huge number of America’s major cities including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Denver, Cincinnati, Portland, Oregon, Louisville, Minneapolis and Washington DC.

Floyd died Monday in Minneapolis after a police officer put his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than 8 minutes.

The officer, Derek Chauvin, was arrested on Friday and charged with third-degree murder. Floyd was black. Chauvin is white.

The arrest has done little to quell protests across the country over the weekend. Most have been peaceful, but some have erupted in violence.

The actual number is likely higher as protests continue Saturday night. More than a third of the arrests, 533, came from Los Angeles alone on Friday.

The mayor of the nation’s second-largest city has imposed a citywide curfew until 5:30 a.m. Sunday.
