175 E. 400 S.
A group protesting the Inland Port deviated from their original protest spot and descended upon the Chamber of Commerce offices. As the protesters stormed the offices we received several calls from frightened employees. Officers responded to quell the situation. Several protesters were located in the offices on the sixth floor and in the lobby of the building. Commands were given to vacate the premise. When those were not adhered to police began physically removing and arresting individuals. There were eight arrests, three by citation and five by way of jail. Charges range from misdemeanor riot, assault, trespassing, and criminal mischief. More charges may result from investigation into this incident.

The driver was wearing a backpack when he fled, inside the backpack was a loaded handgun, marijuana and paraphernalia.
