    Three people were arrested Thursday in connection with President Donald Trump's rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, police said.

    Manchester police said that overall, the rally itself was relatively uneventful. But they said they did make three arrests over the course of the afternoon and evening.

    Around 2:30 p.m., police said a staff member at SNHU Arena, where the rally was held, told police that a group of people were being disruptive and they wanted them to leave.

    After a brief discussion with police, the group went across the street with no further problems. But one man remained and refused to comply with police. That man, later identified as Peter Collins, 69, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

    About 20 minutes later, an officer directing traffic near Auburn and Elm streets saw a group of juveniles riding bikes on the sidewalk. The group continued into the intersection against the red light in a crosswalk while the "Don't Walk" light was on. The officer told the group to stop, but one 16-year-old looked at the officer and continued to move forward, directly in front of an oncoming car.

    The driver of the vehicle was able to stop in time, but the teenager still refused to stop and pulled away from officers when they approached. The teen was arrested and charged with disobeying a police officer and resisting arrest.

    Around 9:10 p.m., a police officer directing foot traffic leaving the SNHU Arena said he saw a man leap over police tape on Elm Street and enter the police command post.

    The man, later identified as Spencer Jubert, 41, did not stop when police called out to him and began to run. When police caught up with him, he moved away. He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

    Police did not release any information about bail or potential court appearances.
