    PHOENIX (Reuters) - Police deployed gas to disperse crowds in Phoenix, Arizona, after protesters outside a rally by U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday threw rocks and bottles, police said.

    "People in the crowd have begun throwing rocks and bottles at police. They also dispersed some gas in the area," Phoenix Police Department spokesman Sergeant Jonathan Howard said.


    "Police have responded with pepper balls and OC (oleoresin capsicum) spray in an attempt to disperse the crowd and stop the assaults," he said.


    Police have not given an estimate of the number of protesters who turned out for the event, but Arizona media said there were several thousand people.

    It has been my experience that the news media exaggerates the size of a leftist's crowd by four times or more and likewise reduces the crowd size of conservatives by the same multiples. The crowd was probably a thousand or less.

    It is really suspicious that I have not seen any panoramic views, only close up pictures. whereby you have no idea of the size of the crowd.

    Four arrested, tear gas used to disperse crowds after Trump's rally in Phoenix

    Four people were arrested outside the Phoenix Convention Center after President Trump's campaign-style rally on Tuesday night.

    While Trump launched renewed attacks on the media in a free-wheeling speech to a crowd of fans inside, police kept protesters and Trump supporters on separate sides of the street outside.

    The largely peaceful protests in Phoenix took a turn after Trump's speech ended and someone lobbed rocks and bottles at cops, according to police spokesman Jonathan Howard.

    Police fired pepper spray at the crowds in response and people fled the scene coughing as an officer in a helicopter bellowed through a speaker urging protesters to leave the area.
