The Latest: Rousseff supporters smash windows in Brazil

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) The Latest on the impeachment trial of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff (all times local):

10:50 p.m.

Unhappy with Dilma Rousseff's ouster, a group of Brazilians smashed windows of bank branches, other businesses and a police SUV in the city of Sao Paulo.

Anti-riot police tried to quell the demonstration that began in one of the city's main avenues with stun grenades and tear gas. The protest turned violent right after new leader Michel Temer addressed the nation in a televised message. It's not clear whether anyone was injured in the clashes.

. . .

Earlier around the same area, a group of people cut cake and drank sparkling wine to celebrate the change in power.
