CLEVELAND (AP) – Police say a Georgia state trooper treated for skin irritation came into contact with a sticker in Cleveland’s downtown Public Square during protests surrounding the Republican National Convention.

Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said Thursday a Cleveland police officer was also treated for skin irritation that didn’t involve a sticker.

Ciaccia said officers were investigating and urging people not to take stickers from people they don’t know.

Ciaccia says police continue to monitor convention protests.

Authorities also said most of the people arrested during a flag-burning protest Wednesday have been charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct or obstruction of business.

Authorities say most are free on personal recognizance bonds with some accused of flag burning still not charged while prosecutors review charges.
