There were only two documented arrests at this event. UC Davis put out the following statement, downplaying the violence that took place…
Tonight’s event organized by Turning Point USA at UC Davis, a registered student organization, occurred with minor incidents. One officer sustained an injury when he was jumped on from behind and pushed to the ground, and two people were arrested and taken to Yolo County Jail for allegedly painting graffiti on an exterior wall of the University Credit Union Center, or UCUC, where the event was held.
One of those taken into custody, who is not affiliated with UC Davis, was charged with misdemeanor vandalism and resisting arrest, and the other, who had not been identified, was charged with vandalism, resisting arrest and threats on a police officer.
Protesters approached the northeast entrance and broke 10 glass panes in the doors but did not gain access to the building and left the area. No arrests were made related to the breaking of the glass.
As the event continued, protesters remained outside.
UC Davis’ security planning over the last several weeks allowed the students to successfully hold their event. Their invited speaker, Charlie Kirk, took the stage in front of an audience of about 500 people.
Outside the UCUC, about 100 protesters gathered and for brief times blocked the main event entrance and the pathway to the entrance. At one point, they threw eggs and other objects. There were some reports of people being pepper sprayed by others in the crowd. Aside from these pepper spray reports, no major physical injuries were reported and no one requested treatment for injuries.https://www.ucdavis.edu/news/controversial-student-led-event-goes-planned
Apparently, left wing protestors have a free pass to do anything they want!
