Three Arrested In Tempe For Unruly Protest Over Syria

September 02, 2013

In the wake of President Obama's decision to ask Congress to endorse a military strike against Syria, protesters took to the streets of Tempe to voice their opposition. Tempe police Sgt. Mike Pooley said about half the crowd became unruly, and three people were taken into custody.

“One of them was arrested for disorderly conduct,” Pooley said. “There was one that was arrest for blocking a public thoroughfare. There was another one arrested for disturbing a police animal, and basically were messing with the horses.”

Pooley says about 100 people showed up on Mill Avenue to demonstrate.
