A tense standoff between protesters and police ended with the use of flash bombs, tear gas canisters in another heated night.  Late Monday, police over loudspeakers told the remaining protesters to leave the area "unless they were credentialed media" and would be subject to arrest, but arrests came toward midnight as police moved protesters and media to another area.  Other protesters were arrested earlier Monday during the first night in which the National Guard of Missouri helped other state authorities secure and police the streets. Some from the crowd taunted police by throwing water bottles. Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol said police came under "heavy fire" of bullets and Molotov cocktails, prompting an increased police presence that halted the protest march Monday evening.  Despite the fracas, Johnson called the night "another step forward in restoring order to the city of Ferguson" and praised the peaceful protesters during an early Tuesday morning news conference, blaming the clashes on "violent agitators (who) hide the crowd and attempt to create chaos."

Constellation Brands Beer announced they're recalling packages of Corona Extra Beer that could contain small particles of glass. The recall covers 12 ounce bottles in six-packs, 12-packs and 18-pack packages. Visit for production codes, printed on the neck of the bottle, that are impacted and refund information. Representatives say a production error occurred at a glass plants run by third party manufactures that supply Corona bottles. It is believed less than one percent the affected bottles are on the market, according to representatives.  "Upon discovery of this, this week we took prompt action to identify and secure potentially affected product and are working closely with wholesalers and distributors to minimize the impact on consumers. Our goal is to have as much of the affected product in our control as soon as possible," said a release from Constellation Brands.
