Police Release Mugshots of 13 Protesters Arrested at Berkeley Rally

Berkeley police have made 13 arrests in connection with demonstrations last Sunday, CBS San Francisco reports.

According to police, charges range from assault with a deadly weapon to violations of the Berkeley Municipal Code. Most suspects are locals.

Last weekend, a “Rally Against Hate” demonstration was interrupted by a mixture of anarchists and members of antifa, a self-described “anti-fascist” group, some of whom attacked demonstrators, journalists and photographers on the scene, and law enforcement.


Berkeley police say one officer was injured during an arrest. Several others reportedly had paint thrown on them.

In the aftermath of Sunday’s events, Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin is reportedly urging the university to cancel an upcoming Free Speech Week to avoid more conflicts.

Organized by a conservative group, it is planning to host, among others, conservative commentator Ann Coulter and former Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos, whose scheduled appearance on campus earlier this year resulted in protesters creating wide-scale property damage.

After President Donald Trump suggested the Yiannopoulos incident warranted the university’s loss of federal funds, Berkeley has become a focal point for right-wing and left-wing agitators, both of whom have incorporated a mixture of folks holding various beliefs.
