FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Three people were arrested and another cited after fights broke out a pro-police rally in Colorado, authorities said Sunday.
The "Back the Blue" rally began outside the Fort Collins police department Saturday afternoon. Counter-protesters also arrived, and the demonstrations devolved into "multiple physical disturbances," Detective Erin Feit told The Denver Post.
Video footage of the conflict showed members of the pro-law enforcement crowd walking toward counter protesters in a neighborhood a few blocks away from the rally, the newspaper reported.
