Seventeen people were arrested, all of them from the crowd separated from the neo-Nazis by lines of police in riot gear. Community leaders and police officials feared that the neo-Nazi march would fuel a riot, as it did last year in Toledo, Ohio. In that incident, more than 100 people were arrested when counterdemonstrators clashed with police on Oct. 15. Twelve officers were injured. No officers were hurt Saturday. Orlando police arrested 17 people in the crowd of counterprotesters, including four juveniles, on charges ranging from wearing a mask on a public way to one charge of battery of a law-enforcement officer. Police said 14 of those arrested were affiliated with an anti-fascist anarchist group. One person was arrested after getting
into a fistfight with other counterdemonstrators.
