The article goes on to state the following:
Police say officers were pelted with rocks and bottles when they tried to intervene. The officers used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.
According to Capt. Naser Zenelovic, an officer suffered minor injuries. “Several Citizens were also injured, News 10 NBC reported.
