CHICAGO – Two arrests were made after a tumultuous on the DePaul University campus.

Protests erupted after an on-campus pro-Trump event this evening.

Internet provocateur and Donald Trump supporter Milo Yiannopolous was the event’s speaker.  It was cut short by demonstrators.  Yiannopolous left the arena and the protests continues into the streets.

University police say they made an arrest.

Earlier Tuesday, an oil-painted and profane example of racist graffiti referencing Trump denouncing Mexico was discovered on-campus.

The university’s president Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider was quick to issue a statement saying, “The markings in the Quad (last night) run contrary to the type of environment we foster at DePaul.”

A 22-year-old man was arrested in connection with the graffiti and charges are pending.
