Weapons Arrest at UC Berkeley Outside of Ben Shapiro Event (PHOTOS)

UC Berkeley officials are preparing for far left Antifa riots Thursday night on campus all because conservative activist Ben Shapiro will be giving a speech.

Businesses are closed and police have spent a reported $600,000 to protect Shapiro for one night–from tolerant liberals of course.

Two women have already been detained and or arrested outside of Ben Shapiro’s event according to contributor for East Bay Times, George Kelly. One woman was reportedly arrested for assault.

Update: Of the two women arrested, 20-year-old Hannah Benjamin of Fremont was arrested for Battery on a Police Officer and carrying a banned weapon, per the Berkeley police department. (Mug shots below)
