The “Back the Blue” rally began outside the Fort Collins police department Saturday afternoon.

Counter-protesters also arrived and multiple disturbances later broke out.

A detective says those arrested and cited came from both the pro-police group and the counter-protesters.

Charging details were not immediately released.

Video footage shows members of the pro-law enforcement crowd walking toward a smaller group of counter-protesters and then fights break out.

It was unclear how the fights began and authorities asked witnesses with any details to come forward.
