14 OF 17 CHARGED AFTER VIOLENT MSU RICHARD SPENCER SPEECH PROTESTS FROM OUT OF STATE
Variety of Charges for Protestors Range from Disorderly Conduct to Assault
Michigan State University Police
25 people were arrested during violent protests outside the MSU Pavilion on Monday where Richard Spencer, a white nationalist, spoke. Hundreds protested, while only about three dozen people actually made it inside for the speech. Spencer says the low turnout, anticipated to be closer to 150, was due largely to the fear of violent protests.
17 of those arrested were charged with various crimes, including assault and battery. 14 of those charged came to the event at MSU from out of state, WLNS-TV reports. Just three people charged are from mid-Michigan. Listen to Josh Strickland, weekday mornings from 5 to 10am, on 88.1 Smile FM in Lansing and 89.7 Smile FM in Flint!
