Police release arrests, jail-processing reports

As of 6 p.m. on Tuesday, police have arrested a total of 135 people since Saturday, according to most recent law enforcement reports, which also shed some light on the status of the more than 100 people arrested on Monday during a police standoff where pepper spray and mace were deployed.

Here are the stats:

Sunday: 4 arrests reported

Monday: 100-plus arrests reported

Tuesday: 18 arrests reported

Also, here is some information on those individuals who were arrested at the 15th Street and Court Place incident Monday evening:

54 made their own bond.

13 pleaded guilty and received a sentenced of “time served.”

9 pleaded guilty and received a fine that is due to be paid later; they were then released.

28 had their cases “released by court”; this usually means that the charges were dismissed.

4 remain in jail with holds from other jurisdictions for outstanding warrants. These names are not available nor are the jurisdictions that are requesting the hold.

According to members with the People’s Law Project, which is providing legal advice to those who are arrested during the convention, the bond was usually $500.
