Fight breaks out between pro-, anti-Confederate flag protesters; one arrested

An Irmo man was arrested after a fight broke out over the Confederate flag in front of the State House Monday night, officials say.

Protesters hold a sign during a rally to take down the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State House on June 23 in Columbia, S.C. For years, South Carolina lawmakers refused to revisit the Confederate flag on Statehouse grounds, saying the law that took it off the dome was a bipartisan compromise, and renewing the debate would unnecessarily expose divisive wounds. Now, with the debate reignited by the shooting of nine black people at a Charleston, S.C., church, a survey indicates that a supermajority of legislators would vote to take the flag down.
