BERKELEY PROTESTS TURN VIOLENT AS TRUMP, ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTERS FACE-OFF

Fifteen people are in custody as an enormous group of pro and anti-Trump demonstrators continue to rally in Berkeley.

Hundreds of President Trump supporters and anti-Trump protesters are having dual demonstrations today near the downtown area at 2151 Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

KRON4 has a team of reporters at Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, where 15 people have already been arrested, and gas was released on the crowd earlier in the morning.

Police say they are anticipating more arrests.

Due to the release of gas, officers are now wearing gas masks.

“A large portion of the crowd has now moved into the street and some fights have broken out,” according to Berkeley police.

“Currently, Allston Way between Milvia St. and Martin Luther King Jr. Way is blocked.”
