Berkeley police have announced this morning they arrested nine people in a "relatively peaceful" protest Monday night.  

Of the nine individuals, one is a juvenile. 

Monday's event marks another day in which people in the Bay Area have demonstrated to protest the treatment of unarmed African American men by white policemen.  

Berkeley police spokeswoman Jennifer Coats said demonstrators were relatively peaceful throughout the event. She is unaware of any looting or damage to property in the city. 

Also, Coats said there are no reports of injuries to Berkeley police officers or community members.
