Five Detained, None Charged During Dallas Rally: Police

Dallas police said they detained a total of five people in Saturday night's rally against white supremacy in downtown Dallas. The department said all five were released without any charges being filed.

The rally, which began at city hall on Saturday night, moved to the Dallas Confederate War Memorial where things got heated at times. The group started marching towards the memorial just before 9 p.m.

Texas State Troopers and the Dallas Police Department mounted patrol held a barrier around the memorial and eventually pushed the protesters out of the park just before 10 p.m.

While at the park, NBC 5 crews saw someone pull out a stun gun and used it on another person.

NBC 5 crews that were on the ground at that memorial heard police fire a bean bag, but it's unclear if it was fired at someone specific or just into the crowd of people.
