On Wednesday, the Kenosha Police Department announced that two people were arrested after a fight broke out on the courthouse steps during protests outside the trial of shooter Kyle Rittenhouse.

"A 20-year-old male was arrested for battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. A 34-year-old female was arrested for disorderly conduct," said the statement. "During the arrests law enforcement needed to deploy several officers to keep crowds of citizens and media from interfering."

Reporters on the scene took pictures of the incident:

The incident occurred as the jury entered their second day of deliberations on Rittenhouse, who fatally shot two people and injured a third during the Jacob Blake protests last year. Rittenhouse has claimed he acted in lawful self-defense. Prosecutors have alleged his actions do not qualify as self-defense because he instigated the conflict.
