The majority of arrests made in Minneapolis during Saturday night's protests were for weapons violations.
That's according to Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner, who said preliminary information shows the majority of arrests were of people from the Twin Cities and Minnesota, with around 20 percent from other states including Arkansas, Kansas City, Iowa, Illinois, and Michigan.
It comes after Gov. Tim Walz, and Mayors Jacob Frey and Melvin Carter suggested on Saturday that most of those arrested for unrest were from out of state, comments that Frey and Carter walked back later on Saturday when it emerged most were from Minneapolis and Twin Cities suburbs.
Of the arrests, Harrington made several references to AR-15s being found on arrestees, which comes on the same night that shots were fired at police at 14th and Hiawatha, though no officers were hit.
Harrington said officers were pulling over cars without license plates, or with lights out, or tinted/blacked out windows.
They found that several of these vehicles had been stolen locally, and were "full of rocks and weapons."
As of 2 a.m. there had been 25 arrests in Hennepin and 30 in Ramsey counties, though a further 40-50 arrests had been made since.
Harrington said the law enforcement strategy had to get "innovative" on Saturday night, which included using Black Hawk helicopters as fire suppression, as well as pulling in fire support from suburban cities.
