Confederate Flag Protestors at S.C. Statehouse Clash

One demonstrator was arrested for disorderly conduct after a clash between dozens of protestors broke out in front of the South Carolina Statehouse. Nicholas Thompson, 25, was charged after "confronting a crowd of anti-Confederate flag protesters," according to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety. Dozens were marching against the flag when 15 vehicles driven by pro-Confederate flag supporters pulled up in front of the Statehouse and around 10 people got out to start an "altercation with the crowd," the SCDPS statement said.
