Neo-Nazis Clash With Protesters At Richard Spencer MSU Appearance

A supporter of white nationalist Richard Spencer was arrested by police Sunday night.

The scene on the southern edge of campus was tense in the early afternoon hours, as protesters and "antifa" members met for the objective of rallying against Spencer and his supporters. A spokeswoman for the Michigan State Police said the department was assisting with crowd control but declined to say how many people had been detained or arrested.

Police arrested both Spencer supporters and protesters for their behavior.

"The safety and security of our campus community remains our top priority", Monette said.

Students are on spring break.

Mark Cuban denies 2011 sexual assault allegation
In response to the report, Cuban said he hired a third party to handle future sexual harassment complaints for the organization. He says he was never charged, after he passed a polygraph test and police determined there was insufficient evidence.

The Ingham County Prosecutor's Office continues to review alleged criminal acts that occurred before and during the Richard Spencer appearance on the MSU campus yesterday, outside of the pavilion.

Pillai said he was with a small group of friends, all of whom shared the same sentiment toward Spencer's ideologies. I am for his ability to speak whatever he wants.

Fistfights broke out on a road leading to Michigan State University in East Lansing as about 40 backers of Spencer walked up a road leading to the campus, where roughly 500 demonstrators had gathered, surrounding an armoured police vehicle. Alt-right generally refers to the modern white nationalist movement, which has an explicitly racist and antisemitic ideology and argues for the creation of a white state.

But protesters, including those who demonstrated peacefully, said it was their duty to stand up to Spencer and his beliefs. Spencer said at least 150 tickets for the event were handed out, but less than 50 people attended the meeting.

Protesters crowded into a remote corner of the Michigan State University campus Monday.
