    Hallandale Beach Police said they arrested an unspecified number of protesters who blocked an entrance of the Mardi Gras Casino Tuesday night.

    A planned protest took place at the casino at 831 N. Federal Highway, but some protesters blocked the west entrance to prevent customers from getting inside, police said.

    A casino agent warned them they were trespassing as did officers, and “a few of the protesters” who would not leave were arrested without incident, police said. The remaining protesters left afterward, police added.
