An Antifa activist allegedly pepper-sprayed protesters across the street from a drag show in Fort Worth, Texas, leading to three arrests, the city’s police department revealed Monday.
Black-clad counter-protesters in tactical gear, many armed with guns, stood outside Fort Brewery and Pizza as the restaurant hosted a drag show Sunday, with protesters for the nonprofit organization Protect Texas Kids demonstrating across the street, according to the Fort Worth Police Department (FWPD).
Counter-protester Samuel Folkes, 20, allegedly went over to the protesters and pepper-sprayed them, subsequently swinging at police when they tried to arrest him.
