TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Officials say three people have been arrested in Tempe during a small protest against a possible U.S.-led attack on Syria.
   
Authorities say the three people were arrested Saturday evening as around 75 people gathering for a march.
   
Police say one person was arrested for blocking traffic, another for prior warrants and one for pulling a police horse's tail.
   
Protesters around the world took to the streets to protest Saturday for and against an attack on Syria amid allegations of chemical weapon use.
