Protesters outside Donald Trump’s rally in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday were pepper sprayed by police, an uncommon practice even at the most tense events for the Republican presidential frontrunner.

Police deployed pepper spray to break up two large groups of more than 200 people who were ready to fight outside, Police Chief Darryl Forte said on Twitter, noting that pepper spray fogger would also be used on demonstrators throwing objects.

Two people were arrested for refusing to follow the law, the Kansas City Police said on Twitter.
