Counter-protest at land dispute site turns nasty

A dispute over a native land occupation at Caledonia, Ont. has taken a nastier turn, with a counter-protest from non-native residents leading to one arrest.
About 500 residents descended on the protest site Monday night, yelling insults at the protesters and calling for them to end their standoff.
They also waved Canadian flags and called for police to "let us through" and "open the road."
When police put the arrested individual in a police cruiser, a crowd of residents swarmed the cruiser.
The residents outnumbered the 100 police on site, who had been keeping them about 100 metres from the 100 native protesters, who had reinforcements join them.
However, they slowly pushed the police back. One resident tried to cross the police line, but the police turned him back.
Earlier in the evening, a crowd of about 3,000 people gathered at a rally over the ongoing dispute, now in its seventh week.
While organizers called for a quick, peaceful resolution, heated arguments started breaking out in the crowd.
