Two suspected protesters were arrested after they were found playing with a BB gun atop a downtown parking garage, authorities said.
They are the first arrests in the city tied to the Republican National Convention, which kicks off tonight with a huge welcome party at Tropicana Field.
St. Petersburg police spokesman Mike Puetz said the agency got a call late Thursday from a concerned citizen who saw people on the roof of a parking garage at 100 Second Ave. S.
“That unto itself is odd,” Puetz said.
