EATON, Colo. — A man was arrested in Eaton Saturday after being accused of trying to drive over a crowd during a pro-police rally.

Around 3:38 p.m., police responded to a report in the 200 block of Collins Street in the Weld County town that a man, driving a maroon-colored SUV, drove through a Blue Lives Matter rally, attempting to strike pedestrians.
