Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s visit to the Phoenix-area went relatively smooth compared to other recent events.
The only troubles that occurred was when protesters blocked roads leading to the rally in Fountain Hills Saturday morning. But unlike the confrontations that took place last week in Chicago or Friday night in Utah between protesters and Trump supporters, things were pretty calm.
However, that wasn’t the case in Tucson, where Trump spoke after his Fountain Hills event.
In the video a protester is shown being escorted from the event when a man comes out of the stands and begins to punch and kick the protester.
The protester spoke with the Arizona Daily Star.
The man who assaulted him, identified as Tony Pettway, is being charged with assault according to Tucson News Now.
In another video to surface from Trump’s Tucson rally, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is shown grabbing a protester by the collar. This wouldn’t be the first incident for Lewandowski, who was accused by Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields of assault.
