Police in Fort Collins, Colorado have arrested three people and cited another after fights broke out between two opposing groups during a pro-police rally.

Hundreds of people posted up outside of the Fort Collins police department Saturday afternoon for the “Back the Blue” rally. Counter BLM protesters arrived and all hell broke loose. People from both sides were involved in several fights that were caught on video.

Neither side was singled out for blame and police said both sides had "active aggressors.”

Here’s the list of suspects arrested or cited by FCPS (via 9NEWS):

• Townley,42, was arrested for disorderly conduct (class 3 misdemeanor).

• Kruger, 25, was arrested for disorderly conduct (class 3 misdemeanor) and resisting arrest (class 2 misdemeanor).

• Mischler-Deleon, 37, was arrested for disorderly conduct (class 3 misdemeanor) and possession of an illegal weapon (class 1 misdemeanor).

• A 42-year-old person was also cited for criminal tampering (class 2 misdemeanor).

“We respect everyone's right to peacefully assemble. Our officers have consistently supported these rights in recent months as people have gathered to make their voices heard. For the safety of our community, acts of violence and other unlawful behavior have not and will not be tolerated from anyone,” FCPS Chief Jeff Swoboda said in a written release.

“Truly supporting a cause means representing its values. Committing crimes in our community is not a way to support police. We stand for safety, period. We want all of our community members to feel safe here in Fort Collins and we reject any form of hate.”

The police are still trying to identify and locate suspects who left the scene. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. CJ O'Loughlin at 970-416-2571.
