PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Prescott Valley police estimate as many as 20,000 people showed up for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign rally in an arena in the Yavapai County community on Tuesday.

Approximately 7,500 people were allowed inside the Event Center and police Sgt. Jason Kaufman says that left an estimated 13,000 people left outside.

Kaufman says the crowd estimate is based on long lines that snaked around and away from the arena, on seven parking lots being filled up and the campaign telling authorities that it distributed 18,000 tickets for the event.

Many of those left outside were able to watch the rally on a large television screen outside the arena.

Kaufman said there were about 50 protesters on hand and that four of them were arrested for disorderly conduct or trespassing.
