University of Iowa police arrest 9 for protest at Kinnick Stadium

University of Iowa police arrested nine people during a demonstration at Kinnick Stadium

On Saturday, nine people were detained by University of Iowa police for reportedly fastening themselves to a door at Kinnick Stadium, blocking University workers from entering.

According to criminal accusations, the gang was protesting around 4:30 p.m. when they shackled themselves to an entrance door with u-bolts and yelled obscenities at police and University workers.

According to police, they had to use bolt cutters to release the protesters from the door. After the protesters apparently refused to comply, they were forced to remove them off the ground and transport them to police vans.

During the protest, a group of people damaged more than $200 in damage, according to police.

For the incident, the following people were charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct, and interfering with official acts:

  • Anthony Allou, 19, of Coralville
  • Ariele Andalon, 27, of Iowa City
  • Miriam Daoud, 22, of Cedar Rapids
  • Ella Doolittle, 22, of Council Bluffs
  • Jared Kula, 22, of North Liberty
  • Brian Nilles, 23, of Ashton
  • Clara Reynen, 26, of Iowa City,
  • Cassidy Slater-Scott, 24, of Iowa City
  • Gabriel Sperry, 26, of Iowa City

Police did not confirm what the group were protesting.
