Trump rally protesters to appear in San Diego court

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Protesters arrested at a Donald Trump rally in San Diego last month are expected to be in court Tuesday.

After presumptive republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s rally at the San Diego Convention Center in May, San Diego police asked the large crowd gathered outside to disperse.

Several small scuffles began, which quickly grew into larger fights.

"The situation rapidly changed from predominantly peaceful protests that we had been seeing all day long, to acts of violence between opposing protesters, which included fights, objects being thrown into the crowd and the crowd pushing and shoving each other,” San Diego Police Department Chief Shelley Zimmerman said.

Some protesters were arrested for “failing to disperse.” In total, 27 adults and five juveniles were arrested. They are expected to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
