A Bloomington man was arrested Friday after shoving protesters at the intersection of College and Kirkwood Avenues, according to Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo.
An officer in an unmarked car watched Synjin Robertson, 22, shove through protesters around 7:15 p.m. when a gray pickup truck was attempting to get through the crowd. The officer said Robertson looked like he was trying to clear the crowd to let the truck through while the crowd was refusing to move.
Robertson was located shortly after and arrested for disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.
The driver of the pickup truck reportedly hit an 18-year-old woman’s foot in the process of backing up and was stopped by an officer after leaving the intersection. He received a citation for not having valid driver's license, but the 18-year-old woman did not choose to press charges against the man.
