Cincinnati’s ABC News affiliate reports:
A Georgetown, Kentucky man was led away from U.S. Bank Arena to chants of “Lock him up!” after assaulting an anti-Trump protester Thursday night.
The brief confrontation — 29-year-old Dallas Frazier climbing out of a pickup and repeatedly punching 61-year-old protester Mike Alter in the head — was recorded and quickly posted to Facebook by fellow protester Scott Fantozzi.
According to Alter, who spoke with WCPO over the phone and via text, the protest against President Donald Trump’s campaign visit to US Bank Arena had been peaceful until Frazier arrived. The driver of the pickup was also detained, according to police.
Mike Alter, a 61-year-old postal worker, protested for the first time tonight outside Trump’s US Bank Arena rally. It was peaceful, he told me — until 29-year-old Dallas Frazier jumped out of a pickup and started swinging. https://t.co/c9nmEI7Qii
