PITTSBURGH (AP) - Video shot by a protester outside Donald Trump’s rally in Pittsburgh apparently shows a local newspaper reporter being shoved by a police officer.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter Megan Guza tweeted that the protester forwarded her the video, and Mayor Bill Peduto responded by saying that authorities are reviewing the video.

Peduto also says that police Chief Cameron McLay will call Guza on Thursday morning.

The incident happened after anti-Trump protesters and his supporters squared off and initially refused to leave until police in riot gear separated the two sides.

At least one person was arrested and police are reporting that two officers were pepper-sprayed.

Guza later tweeted that she was OK saying, “”Thank you for the concern. Little bit of blood, but didn’t even rip the tights!”
