Meanwhile, in Norristown. Melee at Saint Francis Carnival

Someone on Facebook posted asking what happened at Saint Francis Parish in Norristown last night. According to the post, there were a lot of police responding to the parish’s annual carnival.

We searched around and found this video by @topsidemarc on Instagram. It shows the police attempting to subdue one woman, while at least one other person attacks the police. There are others getting involved, but aren’t throwing punches like this one person.

The video shows the crowd dispersing once one officer pulls out pepper spray (or similar device). The video does not show him using it.
