Pepper Spray Used To Disperse Statehouse Protestors

Columbus police used pepper spray gas to disperse a crowd of protesters who were blocking the intersection of High and State Streets last night. The spray forced the crowd to disperse after police instructions to get out of the intersection were ignored. No serious injuries are reported. The crowd was left over from a Statehouse demonstration by 2 thousand people against some of President Trump's policies on immigration, oil and gas drilling and other issues.
