A crowd of demonstrators clashed with police Monday evening in north Tempe. What began as a peaceful protest in Tempe Beach Park escalated into violence after protesters left the sidewalks and moved into the roadways. People in the crowd were yelling profanities and throwing things at bicycle officers. Officers were seen using pepper spray to disperse the crowd, and were even seen tackling a protester who was wearing a football helmet during one confrontation.
