One person arrested at Des Moines City Council meeting Monday night

Tensions continued to be high as the Des Moines City Council tried again to resume in-person meetings.

Two weeks after protestors forced the council to postpone its return to in-person meetings, Monday's meeting led to several people being removed from the chambers and one person arrested.

The council recently amended its rules to limit public attendance to 25 people and impose restrictions on how long members of the public can speak during meetings.

Some members of the audience on Monday night were demanding the council discuss a consent agenda item related to hiring an outside firm for police de-escalation training.
