DURHAM, NC (WWBT/WRAL) - Hundreds of people showed up to the Durham County Sheriff's Office in North Carolina on Thursday to turn themselves after protesters knocked down a Confederate statue this week.

Demonstrators tried to surrender to law enforcement, but they were turned away if they didn't have an arrest warrant.

Only four people face charges so far.
