COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An annual march in honor of an Ohio musician ended early when Columbus police used pepper spray on the crowd and arrested three people.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/184LKZk ) reports about 60 people were walking in an annual march Saturday night to honor Columbus rapper and disc jockey Daymon Dodson when an off-duty officer reported an unruly crowd. Dodson died in 2006 of an epileptic seizure.
The newspaper reports that police said march organizers received a city permit for the march but were supposed to cancel the march when no police volunteered as escorts. The Dispatch says police used pepper spray to move the crowd to the sidewalk about 9 p.m. Saturday and arrested three people.
Police did not immediately return a message seeking comment Sunday.
