“Ricky Joseph Monzon, 20, of Las Vegas, was arrested near Telegraph Ave and Bancroft Way for carrying a banned weapon.”
The protest was led by the leader of a group called Patriot Prayer, Joey Gibson, who released this video before Tuesday’s events. His purpose was to call attention to “disgusting things happening at Berkeley,”.

As Reported By Edmund DeMarche With Fox News.
Berkeley’s reputation as a liberal bastion has made it a flashpoint for the country’s political divisions since the election of President Trump.
Four protests have turned violent on campus and in the surrounding streets in recent months, prompting authorities to tighten security as they struggle to balance free speech rights with preventing violence.
David Marquis, who identified himself as a senior at the school, said he was tired of the protests on campus. Marquis was outside the protest area and described the scene.
“If you look at them, it’s ridiculous,” Marquis told the Los Angeles Times. “You’ve got a guy with purple hair with a f—ing lightsaber talking about Hitler. It’s hard for me to take any of this seriously.”
