Arrests at St. Louis Town Hall

This time it’s in St. Louis at an event hosted by Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-MO).

According to the Post-Dispatch there were at least six arrests. And the only person identified in the still very sketchy reporting appears to be a reform proponent rather than a teabagger.

The backstory to this event appears to be a local Tea Party group which pushed for large teabagging contingent which in turn brought a big pro-health care reform crowd.

Late Update: I’m not sure quite what it means but the article just posted by the Post-Dispatch does not mention the arrests and apparent shoving matches noted in the paper’s earlier flash reports from the scene.
