The downtown Atlanta headquarters of the State Bar of Georgia was defaced with graffiti and broken windows after a peaceful demonstration against police brutality devolved into riots that spread across the city Friday night.

Bar president Darrell Sutton reported in a letter to members Saturday, “As the crowds around CNN Center and Centennial Olympic Park were dispersed, some were driven up Marietta Street toward the Bar Center. Some of them threw rocks, trash cans and other objects at the building, breaking glass in the windows and doors of the Marietta Street entrance, as well as other street-level windows along that side of the building. There was also graffiti spray-painted along one of the walls adjacent to the Marietta Street entrance.”
