A still frame from a video of Sunday's altercation posted to YouTube.
Protestors and police in Burlington clashed on Sunday afternoon at a meeting of the New England Governors and Eastern Premiers.

As the delegates boarded buses to head to a dinner in Shelburne, 25 demonstrators blocked the buses. That prompted police to fire pellet guns to disperse the protestors.

Peter Biello talks with reporter Sam Hemingway who has been covering the story for the Burlington Free Press.
