On Wednesday night, protesters were turning over trashcans and setting the contents inside of them on fire.

In the video, a white man holding a camera can be seen lying on the ground struggling to get up with several protesters surrounding him. The police notice that there is a problem and rush over to help him up and get him away from the rest of the protesters that are near a fire in the middle of the street.

The governor of North Carolina also called a state of emergency and called in the National Guard and Highway patrol to calm the situation.
