Peaceful protests in Ferguson marred by clashes as police arrest 47 people overnight after bottles of urine are thrown at them
Tenth day of protests on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, over the killing of Michael Brown on August 9
Demonstrations were mostly peaceful with protesters holding signs and chanting before leaving the streets at nightfall as requested by city leaders
Situation disintegrated before midnight when some protesters started throwing 'bottles filled with urine' at the police
Police made 47 arrests, mostly of people who refused to disperse
Attorney General Eric Holder arrives in Ferguson today to meet with FBI officials carrying out an independent federal investigation
Michael Brown's mom Lesley McSpadden has said demonstrations will only stop when the cop who shot her son is prosecuted
The 18-year-old's funeral and memorial service is scheduled for Monday
