About 280 people were detained after protests outside the Republican National Convention on Monday turned to rioting:

Along with two University of Kentucky student photographers and a Kentucky Kernel photo adviser who were arrested and charged with rioting, police also arrested and charged with felony rioting a University of Iowa teaching assistant and the president of the University of Central Florida's CodePink—an activist group for women who oppose the Iraq war. All students and advisers listed were later released.

Police also gave about 500 people citations for failing to leave an unlawful protest. Among them were photographers from the University of Wisconsin and Iowa.
