Vice Media co-founder and conservative speaker Gavin McInnes reads a speech written by Ann Coulter to a crowd during a conservative rally in Berkeley, California on April 27, 2017. Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter on April 26, 2017 canceled a planned appearance at the University of California, Berkeley, saying she had lost the backing of the groups that had sponsored her talk. The right-wing commentator had insisted she would show up at Berkeley, a famously progressive campus, on Thursday even though the university said it could not provide a suitable venue because of security threats. But Coulter said she was forced to reconsider her decision after the conservative Young America's Foundation and the Berkeley College Republicans, which had sponsored her talk, backed out, accusing the university of creating a "hostile atmosphere." / AFP PHOTO / Josh Edelson (Photo credit should read JOSH EDELSON/AFP/Getty Images) MORE LESS

NEW YORK (AP) — Three more members of the far-right Proud Boys group have been arrested in connection with an Oct. 12 street brawl after the group’s founder spoke at a New York Republican club.

New York City police say the men turned themselves in Monday, bringing the total number of arrests to eight.

Two other Proud Boys members were arrested Friday. Three protesters were arrested for an alleged robbery the night of the brawl.

Police have said they’re looking to arrest nine Proud Boys in all and three additional protesters.

Security video shows a protester throwing a bottle and people kicking and punching each other.

All three men arrested Monday were charged with riot and assault.

Maxwell Hare, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was also charged with gang assault and criminal weapon possession.

Information on the 26-year-old’s lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
