Six UT Men Among 31 Arrested At ID Pride Event
(Coeur d'Alene, ID) -- Half a dozen Utahns are among the 31 white nationalists arrested for allegedly planning to riot at an LGBTQ+ Pride event in northern Idaho Saturday. The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office says six Utah residents were arrested near the Pride in the Park event in Coeur d'Alene. All 31 suspects are members of the white supremacist neo-Nazi group Patriot Front. Police say the suspects were wearing riot gear including armor and masks and were carrying shields when officers stopped the U-Haul truck they were traveling in. Police responded after a concerned citizen called 911 to report the men piling into the U-Haul looking "like a little army" in the parking lot of a local hotel. Arraignment is scheduled today.
