COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — Protesters lined up outside the Ohio Statehouse on Friday, prior to Governor Mike DeWine's daily coronavirus press briefing.
A lieutenant with the Ohio State Highway Patrol said protesters partially opened a statehouse window, but the windows are not designed to open wide enough to gain access.
Shortly after, troopers were lined up in a hallway, wearing riot gear. The troopers moved the protestors away from the window and reported no further issues.
OSHP said there were no arrests or incidents of violence.
Chants of "re-open Ohio" could be heard outside as people of all ages gathered outside the capital.
State Troopers were on hand, keeping watch, along with the Columbus Police Mounted Unit.
