Las Vegas police arrest 8 people during Saturday protest on Strip

Las Vegas police arrested eight people Saturday during a protest on the Strip.

One person was arrested for battery on a protected person; seven others were arrested for failure to stay on the sidewalk, police said. More details on those arrests weren’t available Monday as arrests reports had not yet been released.

A group of several hundred people protesting President-elect Donald Trump gathered in The Linq’s parking lot Saturday night, then marched along the Strip to Trump International, 2000 Fashion Show Drive.

The protesters were met by a small group of pro-Trump supporters. Las Vegas police formed a line between the two crowds to keep peace.
