UPDATE: Phoenix police have explained the bloody-faced jail mugshot of a man arrested at protests related to President Donald Trump's rally.
Daireus Latravus Stokes was taken into custody Tuesday night on suspicion of aggravated assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and threatening or intimidating.
A mugshot shows Stokes with blood on and around his nose and apparent bruises and scrapes elsewhere on his face.
Police say Stokes was taken to the ground during his confrontation with officers.
They say Stokes had a loaded handgun when confronted by officers after he allegedly parked illegally.
According to a court document, Stokes elbowed police officers and broke free at one point while being arrested after one officer noticed Stokes had a gun.

PHOENIX - There are still many unanswered questions after a chaotic scene erupted following President Donald Trump's rally Tuesday night in downtown Phoenix.

Phoenix police fired pepper balls and smoke bombs to disperse protesters as Trump supporters were leaving the rally.

Police Chief Jeri Williams said at a news conference late Tuesday night that the police response was prompted by a protester who had thrown a gas canister at police providing security outside the rally.

Several witnesses said they saw a few water bottles tossed at officers.

Police said four protesters were arrested after Trump spoke at the Phoenix Convention Center Tuesday night.

The names of those arrested were released Wednesday.

Daireus Latravus Stokes, 18, was arrested for three counts of aggravated assault on police, three counts of disorderly conduct, one count of resisting arrest, and three counts of threatening and intimidating. Pamela Ann Robertson, 25, and Derrick Gilbert Pacheco were arrested for one count each. Robertson for aggravated assault on police and Pacheco for disorderly conduct.

Police said a juvenile was also arrested for criminal damage while another man was arrested in the area on an unrelated misdemeanor warrant.
