Police arrest 3 during demonstration in Seattle
Three people were arrested during a demonstration on Capitol Hill on Friday night, including a man who hit an officer with a cane.
A video from the night, sent to KOMO News, shows a man with a cane being pushed away by a police officer. As the officer walks away the man swings his cane and hits the officer, who then pepper-sprays the man in the face and forces him to the ground.
Seattle Police said that the man was arrested for assault on an officer.
During the evening a group of people also blocked traffic in the city resulting in officers announcing an order to disperse.
Two people were arrested for failure to disperse, obstructing, resisting arrest and property. All three were booked into the King County Jail.
