The Phoenix Police Department says a fourth person was arrested on charges related to a protest after President Donald Trump's speech at the Phoenix Convention Center ended Tuesday night.

Those four arrests plus one arrest of a person on an unrelated warrant bring the total number of arrests at the protest to five.

A contingent of protesters stayed behind after the clash with police had ended. Their numbers were small.

Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said three people were arrested on charges related to a protest after President Donald Trump's speech at the Phoenix Convention Center had ended Tuesday night.

She adds that one person was arrested on an unrelated warrant. Williams says that two officers were treated for heat exhaustion.

Phoenix police lobbied what they say is pepper spray at protesters who threw rocks and water bottles at them as President Donald Trump's rally broke up.

Clouds of the gas filled the night air as the president's supporters began leaving the downtown Phoenix Convention Center.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, but it was the closest to violence seen all evening.
