A Rally for Black Lives march on Saturday in Pleasant Valley is going viral after a group of men were captured on video getting aggressive with the march.
In a video obtained by News 12, it shows two men shoving women. The clash happened between the Rally for Black Lives group and the Blue Lives Matter demonstrators.
The counter-protest was organized by the Dutchess County Conservative Committee. Their chairman tells News 12 those individuals are not representative of their committee or their message.
The Rally for Black Lives organizer says some of the members of the group were injured and one person suffered a broken nose. The group says it is seeking legal action for those responsible.
The Dutchess County Sheriff's Office is also looking into the incidents.
