Warning: Strong language can be heard in the following videos.

Police used their bikes to shield businesses and eventually began to use pepper spray and "flash bang' grenades _ releasing a flash of light, smoke and a loud noise _ to disperse the crowd. But that pushed the group to the Capitol Hill neighborhood, and they left a wake of overturned trash cans and debris on the street, as well as smashed windows on local businesses.
