    Rhode Island State Police have arrested two people accused of getting into an altercation at a Donald Trump rally in Warwick Monday.

    Josh Sandin, 19, of Warwick, and Alexander Carrion, 22, of Providence, were both charged with Simple Assault and Disorderly Conduct.

    Police say Carrion pushed through a crowd of Trump supporters and spit in Sandin's face.

    The two began to push and shove each other and were eventually pulled apart by bystanders.

    The two were arraigned Wednesday and were both released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail.

    They are both due back in court May 9. It is not clear if either has an attorney.

    Over the weekend police arrested a man accused of threatening to bomb a Trump rally in Connecticut.
