St. Paul, Minn. (AP) Police in downtown Minneapolis arrested 102 people early this morning following a Rage Against the Machine concert. Most have already been released.

Lisa Kiava, a spokeswoman for the Hennepin County sheriff's office, says most of the charges are expected to be misdemeanors.

Police had expressed concern Wednesday about the possibility of trouble after the concert. Some 400 people had been arrested in Minneapolis and St. Paul since Saturday in pre-emptive raids and at protests that were marred by violence from people hoping to
interfere with the Republican National Convention.
