Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler clarified what drivers can do if protesters block roadways.
Kunzeweiler said every person is entitled to defend themselves with equal force.
He stated self-defense has to be a reasonable reaction.
He said his office considers the perspective of the person facing the threat and looks at everything on a case-by-case basis.
Kunzweiler said it is irresponsible to block roads without making arrangments to ensure safety for all involved.
However, he said in this environment "wisdom would dictate not even getting close to an area where there is a likelihood of confrontation."
