PASCO, WA- After hours of peaceful protests Saturday, the situation took a bit of a turn when protestors from outside the Tri-Cities caused police to make an appearance.

After the peaceful protest ended, Pasco Police warned other protestors to get off of the streets or they will be arrested.  That was after 30 police officers blocked of 10th and Lewis Street to control the crowd.

"We just want to make it very clear that our peaceful protest ended at 4 p.m. These people obviously got here after our peaceful rally was over.  This is something else.   I'm not sure who's organizing it," said Fabian Ubay, peaceful protest organizer.

"When the public's safety is put at risk, that's when things change.  You have the right to assembly.  If you put the public's safety at risk, blocking 10th and Lewis on a weekend evening, that's a busy intersection," said Sgt. Scott Warren, Pasco Police Department.

The protestors stayed out for most of the night and some of them traveled all the way from Seattle.  There is no telling when the protests will be done.
