WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Two men who allegedly tussled and spit at each other during a Donald Trump rally in Rhode Island have been charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct.

State Police Lt. Col. Todd Catlow says the altercation happened outside the Warwick hotel where the GOP presidential front-runner spoke Monday.

He says videos that circulated on social media show 22-year-old Providence resident Alexander Carrion pushing his way through Trump supporters and spitting at 19-year-old Josh Sandin, of Warwick.

Police say Sandin and Carrion shoved each other and Sandin spit at Carrion as bystanders tried to separate them.

Both were released on $1,000 personal recognizance at their arraignment Wednesday. A message left at a telephone listing for an Alexander Carrion was not immediately returned. A number for Sandin couldn’t immediately be located.
