Demonstrators hold signs as they as they block traffic on Interstate 94 in St. Paul, Minn., after leaving a vigil at the state Capitol on Friday, June 16, 2017.
According to CNN, 18 protesters were arrested for demonstrating on a highway and failing to disperse when ordered.
Both were in the vehicle when the officer shot Castile during a traffic stop on July 6 of past year.
Mr Castile had reportedly been reaching for his wallet but the officer testified that Mr Castile was ignoring his commands not to pull out the gun and he feared for his life.

"I can feel her pain", Holmes said on Sunday to a few hundred people gathered at 53rd Street and King Drive in Washington Park for a rally to protest the verdict in Castile's case.
"I don't doubt that Officer Yanez is a decent person, but he made a awful mistake from our perspective, and that's what this case was about".
Yanez, who is Latino, testified he stopped Castile in a suburb of St. Paul, Falcon Heights, because he thought Castile resembled someone who robbed a nearby store several days earlier.
Questioned by his defense attorney during the trial, Yanez said: "I was scared to death".

"Because if the government can take your life and no one is held responsible, you are a second-class citizen, if not fully dehumanized in the eyes of the law", she said.
But according to one of the jurors who found Yanez not guilty on Friday, even the jury's black members said Yanez was legally justified in his decision to use lethal force against Castile.
