According to Ron Paul and his campaign staff, 113 of the 180 delegates voted to remove the sitting GOP chairman when he refused to respond to requests for information. The 113 delegates than physically moved their chairs away from the "establishment GOP" and started their own convention. The nearly two-thirds of the delegates began their convention, and that's when the mayhem broke out. Security officials, unaware of the newly formed convention, attacked Henry Herford Jr. His prosthetic hip was dislocated and may have to be replaced. Alex Helwig, chairman of the Rules Committee, was arrested after he made a motion to remove the Republican chair.

Hmm everything seemed pretty calm afterwords for someone who had his fingers "broken". I didn't even hear him complaining about a pain in his hand.
And from the website all people noticed was a cane, and not a cast/bandage over his fingers.
My question is why did the delegates stay instead of going somewhere else?
Your right though, RP supporters are getting a reputation. they seem to cause more trouble then anything.
I think Ron Paul can handle himself and doesn't need his rabid followers attacking everyone for him. imo just makes Ron Paul look bad and gets his message muddled in the water even more.
The Shreveport police released him later; however, some of his fingers were broken during his detainment.

Can someone arrest all these lunatic Paul supporters before someone gets seriously hurt?
Paul supporters - go home.
