Progressive Thug Arrested At Phoenix Tea Party Rally
Acccording to Tucson Citizen.com, a Progressive Thug that was harassing people who attended the April 15th Tea Party in Phoenix was arrested by police:
"Timothy R. Coomer, 39, was intimidating people in the front row of the “Feet to the Fire” tea party rally held on the Senate and House lawns at the state capitol building between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m, said DPS Officer Bob Bailey. Coomer was sitting on his bicycle in an area for the media when authorities arrived. He became belligerent when police and event organizers asked him to leave, Bailey said, and he also resisted arrest but eventually was taken into custody and booked into Fourth Avenue Jail. Coomer has been arrested before on suspicion of marijuana possession, Bailey said."
Tensions were high at the Tea Party Rally as this video of Sheriff Joe's speech will attest. During his entire speech a counter protester does his best to drown out Sheriff Joe with a bull horn:
2 other people were arrested at the Tea Party Rally but there are no details on those arrests.
Here is a Video from a local news station on the event. It appears the event got a little crazy. The elderly gentleman yelling at the counter protester is a great example of what not to do:
