OK, this is a little bit complex. The press is reporting that an "unruly" crowd "interfered" with the interrogation and arrest of this man, and that he was suspected of DUI (at least according to the Daily Bull, although the P-E makes no mention of that).

What the community is telling us is that the guy was racially profiled and stopped for suspicion of not having a license. The people who crowded around, they say, were family members and neighbors who were protesting the injustice.
