From our News Partner WFSB:

A conservative commentator was arrested after an altercation during a controversial speech at the University of Connecticut on Tuesday evening. 

UConn's College Republican student group sponsored an event with conservative commentator Lucian Wintrich, who is the White House correspondent for the right-wing blog Gateway Pundit. His speech was titled "It's OK To Be White."

More than 100 people sat in on the speech and when Wintrich arrived, he was booed by the crowd. Wintrich fired back frequently at the crowd leading to a tense atmosphere.
