Handful of arrests made after Donald Trump rally gets called off

Posted by wlpo on March 12, 2016

CHICAGO (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump cancelled a rally in Chicago, calling off the event due to safety concerns after protesters packed into the arena Friday night.

The announcement that Trump would postpone the rally for another day led the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion to break out into raucous cheers. Parts of the crowd also broke out in minor scuffles.

The Chicago PD says five arrests were made.
