Authorities arrested seven people amid demonstrations over a Confederate statue at the University of North Carolina.
The university confirmed the arrests, saying the charges ranged from assault and destruction of property to resisting an officer and inciting a riot.
The school added, no one taken into custody was affiliated with the school.
This comes just one week after the Confederate ‘Silent Sam’ statue was pulled down by demonstrators in the state, who claimed it had a racist context.
Over 100 people attended the weekend protests, though no injuries were reported.
