The offenders were involved in a violent confrontation with police supporters at a Back the Blue rally in Fort Collins, Colo. On Saturday, which ended with the arrests of three people.
Pro-police attendees said two different groups of protesters – made up of Black Lives Matter supporters and apparently Antifa members – joined the protest. They also claimed that a faction from one of these two groups attacked a veteran who was in a wheelchair, according to The Collegegian.
Clips posted on the Instagram account of an indicator of a rally showed an all-out scuffle of various protesters beating each other as people shouted and cursed as they watched.
Another participant can be heard in the video saying, “Keep hitting each other in the face, but don̵7;t shoot anyone.”
Ciara Wilson, a local high school student who filmed part of the fight, said there were no police officers to be found after the opposing sides beat each other in the grass pit.
“Once they get off the road from the police station, it just goes into a sweeping brawl in the middle of a grassy pit,” she told The Collegegian. “10 to 15 people just piled on top of each other. Chokeholds, sticks, punches in the face all, and there were no police.”
