ACLU of Missouri has filed a lawsuit against the Missouri Department of Health for not releasing lab results about “unknown chemicals” labeled as “apple cider vinegar” confiscated by St. Louis County Police during September protests in downtown St. Louis.

Despite not being a law enforcement agency or having the power or ability to make arrests, the Missouri Department of Health claims it cannot release the lab results because they’re part of an ongoing criminal investigation.
