BK man charged in brawl after speech by far-right leader

BK man charged in brawl after speech by far-right leader

Shea said Monday that three more protesters were to be arrested for the brawl, too.

This weekend saw physical altercations between protest groups in two major American cities, both Portland, Oregon and New York City.

Gavin McInnes, a co-founder of Vice Media and founder of the Proud Boys, a male-only organization that describes its members as "western chauvinists" and is seen as part of the so-called alt-right ultra-nationalist movement, gave the talk at the Metropolitan Republican Club.

"We believe we have valid [reason for the] arrests for those nine individuals to include charges of riot and attempted assault", NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at a press conference, adding that the raps could be upgraded. Police didn't immediately make clear if those in custody were affiliated with the Proud Boys or the group of protesters. While multiple witnesses claim it was the Proud Boys who were the aggressors, no other arrests were made on the scene.

Police are investigating vandalism outside the Metropolitan Republican Club that appeared Thursday night.

Theresa May puts the brakes on customs union deal with Brussels
As I have said many times October 2018 was going to be a big month but it looks like it might be bigger than I thought. Mr Wilson confirmed his party's view that a no-deal Brexit was "probably inevitable". "It's a dynamic situation".

Vandals spray-painted the doors of the Metropolitan Republican Club in NY, seen in this photo from Friday, Oct. 12, 2018.

According to a police report, three of the protesters chased after a Proud Boys supporter as he left the building, ultimately punching him and taking his backpack.

In total, nine members of the "Proud Boys", a right-wing, men-only activist group founded by Gavin McInnes, now of CRTV, could face charges.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is blaming the Republican Party and President Donald Trump for Friday night's violence in Manhattan outside a GOP headquarters. Elected officials were outraged over the online videos showing the violence, saying they showed Proud Boys members were involved and should face consequences.
