Jacksonville attorney John Phillips said he’s conducting a review of what happened during a Hemming Park protest Friday as he prepares to represent at least one of those arrested.

Several protesters were arrested during a demonstration against last week’s U.S. airstrikes in Syria. Philips said he’s reviewing all available evidence of what led to the arrests.
