FERGUSON, MO - Police and protesters have clashed briefly in Ferguson just hours after the St. Louis suburb's police chief issued an apology to the family of Michael Brown.

The black 18-year-old Brown was shot dead by a white police officer Aug. 9.

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson appeared outside the police department in civilian clothes late Thursday and assured protesters that there would be changes in the wake of Brown's death.

Jackson started to march with protesters around 11 p.m. A scuffle broke out about 20 feet behind the chief and one protester was arrested. At least three more protesters were arrested after a confrontation.

The Ferguson Police Department spokesman didn't immediately return call to The Associated Press early Friday.
