Transcript for Inauguration Day Protesters Clash in the Streets of DC
Not everyone gathered here in Washington today came to celebrate president trump's inauguration. Protesters lined part of the parade route. And in some parts of the capitol, there were confrontations with police. And tomorrow here in Washington, a women's March, and demonstrations planned across this country. ABC's David Kerley witnessed the protests first hand. Are T Reporter: The anger reaching a boiling point after president trump took the oath of office. Police in riot gear facing off, just six blocks from the inaugural parade. Unleashing pepper spray, concussion grenades, all to disperse the crowd. You have the bulk of the protesters right here, and here's the police line right at 13th. Trash cans and then three vehicles set on fire. Two vehicles have been ignited. The fire folks have just moved in. Many of the protesters cloaked in black with their faces covered. The protesters had filled the street with several trash cans and now police and fire are trying to move them out of the way. Earlier in the day, self-proclaimed anarchists smashed Washington storefronts with hammers. Across the country, there were other, but peaceful protests, in dozens of cities, from Boston to Minneapolis. These people forming a human chain across the golden gate bridge. And you could hear the choppers flying over us tonight. David Kerley joins us from Franklin square. What's the scene like right now? Reporter: Well, the crowd is largely dispersed, David. Just a couple of dozen still here, but police are standing their ground, standing their line with batons in hand. More than 217 protesters arrested. Six police officers injured, David. David Kerley with us live tonight. David, thank you.
