Santa Fe police release lapel video from arrests made during anti-Trump protests

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – New video shows some of the arrests made during a protest in Santa Fe over the weekend. Authorities arrested at least four people at the demonstration protesting President-elect Donald Trump.

The lapel cam videos show police officers’ frustration as protesters take over the street, chanting “not our president” and blocking traffic.

There’s about an hour of lapel cam video from one officer. At one point, a woman is standing on top of a car. Police detain her as others are standing close by, recording with cell phones. Police say the woman was exposing herself. She was cited and released for indecent exposure.

Others were arrested for obstructing an officer, unlawful assembly and disorderly conduct.

According to police reports, one of the protesters arrested, an instigator, became violent with police, pulling an officer down a stairwell and causing him to hurt his shoulder.

Another protester, Morgan Cook, says he was there to help protect people and to stand in solidarity with those who are unhappy Donald Trump is President-elect. This, despite the fact he says he voted for Trump.

Several of the demonstrators took off, running from police before they caught up to arrest them. These individuals are the ones police say led the protest onto the street.

The protest were one of many across the country in anger over the newly elected President Donald Trump, many upset over his immigration plan.
