Trump Rally Protestor Kicks Tear Gas Back At Police, Gets Shot With Rubber Bullet On Live TV

By Mark Pygas

Despite a successful presidential campaign and getting into the White House months ago, President Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday evening. At the rally, Trump spoke out against movements to remove Confederate statues following the violence at Charlottesville, saying:  "They're trying to take away our culture. They're trying to take away our history." 

While protests against the rally were largely peaceful, violence broke out later in the night. Local news outlet CBS5 was covering the events, and caught the moment that one protester wearing a gas mask kicked a canister of tear gas back at police. Seconds later, the protester fell over as he appeared to be shot in the groin by a rubber bullet.
