Fascist live-streamer Chris Nelson assaulted several people including an antifascist journalist and later invaded the venue and started screaming. He was escorted out and issued a trespass warning, but was not arrested.
Only three Proud Boys showed up, an epic fail by the Vice City Proud Boys on their own turf in light rain. Posts on social media show Proud Boys associates and various far-Right online grifters scuffling with counter-protesters.
