Six anti-Trump protesters were arrested during a pro-Trump rally in the Minnesota State Capitol.
Security guards herded the protesters onto a staircase, but small skirmishes with rallygoers followed nonetheless. At least one man was taken away in handcuffs and someone sprayed a chemical irritant into the crowd.
The protesters briefly regrouped on the other side of the rotunda before dispersing. State Patrol officers arrested one protester in the Capitol. He is expected to face a disorderly conduct charge. St. Paul police arrested five people at the intersection of Rice and University avenues for having set off the smoke bomb. They are expected to face rioting charges.
