Late Sunday night in downtown Lafayette, a few small groups were still gathered at the intersection of 3rd and Main Streets, quietly talking and watching the Tippecanoe County Courthouse and surrounding streets. They were piecing together the past few hours.
Grant Vasquez was still holding on to a brightly colored sign. He and his friends described what they experienced as a mostly peaceful evening of protest that turned chaotic.
“No one’s breaking anything right now,” Vasquez said. “It’s all peaceful right now.”
