On Friday night, protests took place all over the country in numerous major cities like Atlanta, New York, Houston, and Dallas following George Floyd’s death while in police custody.
Smaller communities, like Columbus, also took part in demonstrations and things got a bit crazy as well.
Ohio State basketball player Seth Towns found himself being detained while shouting to other protesters.
Eleven Warriors reported police later released Towns and he is safe at home.
Towns had just graduated from Harvard before he transferred to Ohio State.
When announcing his commitment to Ohio State, he remarked about the ability to come home and play for the Buckeyes.
“I’m coming home. It’s been my childhood dream. I have a painting of me in an Ohio State jersey on my childhood bedroom wall. I got that when I was two years old,” he said.
He has two years of eligibility remaining to play for the Buckeyes.
