Here's How Often People Are Hurt And Arrested At Donald Trump Events

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 22/03/2016 Dana Liebelson

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has denied  that people are hurt at his campaign rallies and said he doesn't condone violence. But arrests, citations and reports of assault at Trump events continue to stack up . The Huffington Post is tracking these incidents to provide a more complete picture of how often they occur.

We gathered arrest and citation reports by contacting individual police stations. The majority of charges are for disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, or obstructing a police officer or thoroughfare — allegations generally related to protesting. Trump has made taunting and booing protesters part of his brand, and at least one person has been ejected from  most of his events .

We used news reports and police documents to count physical altercations, including force used by security against protesters and journalists, as well as violence against law enforcement. We included incidents like the two misdemeanors for assault issued at an event in Tucson, Arizona; a report that a Trump supporter was "shoved against the metal barricades" at a rally in New Orleans;  and police reportedly using pepper spray twice at a rally in Kansas City, Missouri . We also included accusations lodged against Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski -- allegations that the campaign has denied.

In the database, we linked to news reports listing the incidents and noted if any information came from a specific police station. This list only includes rallies where incidents were reported, and should not be considered comprehensive.
