COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The Columbia Police Department and the Richland County Sheriff’s Department have released a list of protesters who were arrested over the weekend.

Police say more than 50 people were arrested by both agencies.

Ten of those arrested face looting charges, while 31 violated the city ordinance concerning the 6 p.m. curfew. The remainder were arrested on various charges such as disorderly conduct, while three face weapons charges.

The majority of the people on the following list who are charged with looting have reached out to WIS saying they were actually arrested for a curfew violation.

While online court records still show them charged with looting, they dispute the charge and say it’s an error that needs to be fixed.

WIS has reached out to both police departments but has not been able to confirm from them if the charges will be changed.

When WIS first heard there may be some errors on the list, the only name mentioned was Jennifer Doyle. A spokeswoman for the Columbia Police Department quickly confirmed Doyle was not arrested for looting, but rather for a curfew violation.

When WIS later asked about the other people who dispute their charges -- neither department has responded other than to say they are looking into it.

It should be noted that Doyle’s charge still shows up as looting on online court records, like the others who have disputed their charges.

RELATED STORIES

Looking at the list, 15 people were from the Columbia area. Another 20 were not, police said. And at least five of the protesters were from out of state, according to the list.

However, some of those people listed as living out of state told WIS they either recently relocated to Columbia or go to school here.
