Kent police arrest four in bridge protest

KENT: You could call it the bridge over troubled protesters.

Kent police arrested four protesters who were part of a group of about 200 who blocked the West Main Street bridge for about an hour late Sunday afternoon.

The group was taking part in a scheduled march from Kent State University into the town as part of the May 4 commemoration of the campus shootings of protesters 38 years ago.

Police said members of the Kent State University Anti-War Committee and the Portage Community Peace Coalition occupied and blocked the bridge for about an hour.

The four people who were arrested about 4:35 p.m. were released after they were charged with failure to comply with police orders to clear the road, police said.

Police did not release the names of the people who were arrested. Officers did not know why the protesters blocked the bridge.
