VIDEO: Protesters removed from Marsha Blackburn rally

Marsha Blackburn

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A disruption took place at a Marsha Blackburn rally in Nashville.

FOX News Capitol Hill Producer Jason Donner caught the incident on video during Sunday's Get Out The Vote rally. Senator Lindsey Graham was in attendance.

One video shows an officer wrestling with a protester to take him into custody.

In another video, a woman is removed from the rally kicking and screaming.

Marsha Blackburn released this statement:

“This Sunday afternoon, the liberal angry mob made it clear they are active in Tennessee and will stop at nothing to disrupt civil political discourse. I'm grateful to the law enforcement officers who were here today and kept everyone safe. The protestors at today's event were absolutely appalling. They yelled 'Impeach Trump.' They kicked. They punched. They resisted law enforcement, and they interrupted a moment of silence for the victims in Pittsburgh. Never in my life have I heard of people interrupting a moment of silence. Phil Bredesen is their leader, and their behavior is despicable."

It is unclear if the people removed from the rally were cited, or face any charges. FOX 17 News has reached out to Metro Nashville police.
