Officers were immediately on the scene and after about ten minutes the police asked the driver to leave with the portable toilets. The crowd was upset that on a day of celebration basic needs were not allowed to be delivered. Shortly afterwards an officer is seen tackling a citizen and another police officer helps push the citizen to the ground.
