Police, activists clash in Tucson immigration protest

A protest in downtown Tucson against President Trump’s immigration policies escalated Thursday evening. Three officers sustained minor injuries in clashes with demonstrators; no one was taken to a hospital, said Tucson Police Sgt. Pete Dugan.

One officer was hit in the face and another in the back, Dugan said. He wasn’t sure how the third was injured.

Three men were arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault on a police officer, Dugan said. A woman was arrested on suspicion of obstructing, and of failing to identify herself, Dugan said. All four will be booked into Pima County jail, he said. Their names were not immediately released.

Dugan said the police office of professional standards will investigate, after protesters complained about officers’ actions.

1. this is what I've been worried about

any hint of violence like this is going to strengthen the admin of 45. I couldn't believe how many of even dem friends got all focused on the Berkeley violence.
