State Police and media reports say about 100 to 200 people, who were protesting President Trump’s immigration policies, ended up blocking an ambulance from getting to a local hospital, which forced paramedics to perform an emergency medical procedure themselves on a “critically ill patient.”
State Police say they did arrest the leader of the protest but not before he tried to flee on foot including knocking into some of the protestors he helped organize. Law enforcement officials issued a sternly worded statement about the incident.
“The Connecticut State Police would like to remind the public that protests blocking any highway or roadway is not only a crime, but dangerous and will NOT be tolerated. All laws will be strictly enforced,” State Police said in a news release.
