F*ck the Police march: No evidence of urine-filled balloons, DPD says

Update: In the wake of Saturday's Fuck the Police march (see photos below), assorted media outlets, including the Denver Post, shared reports that urine-filled balloons had been hurled at the event, which resulted in five arrests. But Denver Police spokesman Lieutenant Matt Murray, who was on the scene, says he has no personal evidence that something like this actually occurred. But he saw plenty of other things.
