KRON4’s Will Tran witnessed an arrest in which a man claimed he was taken into custody for wearing a mask.
Police have not confirmed that reasoning.
However, prior to the demonstrations, police warned that masks would not be permitted at the events.
A Berkeley PD spokesperson says the arrests were “on-going” throughout the morning.
A total of 13 people were arrested on a variety of charges, “including assault with a deadly weapon, felony assault, and violations of the Berkeley Municipal Code,” police said.
Police say an officer was injured during one of the arrests, and several officers were struck with paint.
Another six people were injured and treated by paramedics.
“Two of those individuals were transported to local hospitals for treatment,” police said.
