MEDIA UPDATE FROM STATEHOUSE RALLIES ON SATURDAY

COLUMBIA, SC -- The South Carolina Department of Public Safety is reporting that there were five arrests during the rallies on the Statehouse grounds today in Columbia. There was a heavy law enforcement presence -- on and around -- the perimeter of Statehouse grounds throughout the day. SCDPS estimates the crowd at about 2,000 at the peak of the rallies.

         There were 23 calls for emergency services;

 

         Seven people were transported by EMS.

 

         No police officers were injured.

 

Additional law enforcement were brought to the scene during the afternoon when tensions between protesters and counter-protesters flared during the KKK Rally.  The arrests were made during the afternoon rally and following the rallies. There were isolated fights and disputes when protesters clashed in heated exchanges.
