Utah Governor Gary Herbert says he will keep the Utah National Guard on standby in case more violent protests erupt in Salt Lake City or elsewhere. 

Herbert was visiting clean-up crews at the State Capitol grounds yesterday to personally thank them for their work cleaning up vandalism and graffiti left behind by protesters. 

Herbert called out the Guard Saturday after protests over the death of George Floyd on police brutality turned violent, resulting in damage to Salt Lake City Police headquarters and the State Capitol. 

Herbert said yesterday that he was disappointed the protests turned violent, adding that anyone engaged in violence would be prosecuted.

Herbert said he was disappointed by the violence that happened Saturday night.
