Two people participating in a counter-protest to a right-wing rally at the Rhode Island Statehouse on Saturday were arrested, according to police.
One was a 34-year-old Massachusetts man who police said threw fecal matter – likely left by a Providence Policeman’s horse -- at a state trooper. Andrew St. Jean, of Gill, Mass., was charged with felony assault and disorderly conduct.
Police also arrested Alex Carrion, also 34, of Providence. Police said Carrion hit another man with an unknown object while inside the Providence Place Mall, where rally participants had parked.
