Man arrested at Speed Street after hitting officer

NBC Charlotte

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested one man and charged him with assaulting an officer Thursday evening at Food Lion Speed Street.

Officers told NBC Charlotte one of them was apparently hit during the scuffle.

Speed Street has been deemed an extraordinary event, which means police have more power to keep the peace.

Speed Street will continue at noon Friday and runs through Saturday. Parts of Tryon Street, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Brevard Street in uptown are closed due to Speed Street this weekend.
