New video from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department shows that only a single deputy was trying to deal with protesters who showed up for a Donald Trump Rally in Fountain Hills.
 
For about 15 minutes, the deputy was on his own until help arrived.
 
Protesters blocked Shea Boulevard preventing people from getting to the Trump rally. 
 
He even spoke to an organizer of the protest who didn't exactly cooperate. That's when tow trucks were called in to remove the vehicles that were blocking the street, but then protesters tied themselves to the cars. 
 
By the time everything was cleared up, three protesters were arrested and it ended up delaying Trump's rally by about an hour.
