NEW YORK (AP) — Three more members of the far-right Proud Boys group have been arrested in connection with an Oct. 12 street brawl after the group’s founder spoke at a New York Republican club.
New York City police say the men turned themselves in Monday, bringing the total number of arrests to eight.
Two other Proud Boys members were arrested Friday. Three protesters were arrested for an alleged robbery the night of the brawl.
Police have said they’re looking to arrest nine Proud Boys in all and three additional protesters.
Security video shows a protester throwing a bottle and people kicking and punching each other.
All three men arrested Monday were charged with riot and assault.
Maxwell Hare, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was also charged with gang assault and criminal weapon possession.
Information on the 26-year-old’s lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
