No arrests made during ceremony
Source: DC Examiner

We had a crowd stretching from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial and for the most part it was an orderly and festive, said U.S. Park Police Sergeant Robert LaChance. We couldnt have asked for a better day.

No arrests were made as of Tuesday afternoon, according to D.C., National Park and U.S. Capitol police.

Emergency crews mainly dealt with minor medical issues, and about 30 lost children throughout the day. Children who were lost on the south side of the National Mall were taken to a D.C. police substation at 415 Fourth St. in Southwest Washington. Those on the north side of the Mall were taken to a police station at 501 New York Ave. NW.

snip...

The past two inaugurations saw dozens of arrests. In 2001, Democrats angry over the ballot recount threw tomatoes and oranges during the parade. On the night of President Bushs second inauguration, nearly 70 people were arrested in Adams Morgan by police in riot gear. A federal judged last year ruled that the arrests were unlawful.

I spoke with a relative who worked the event and the secret service told her they had picked up several people due to fights.

9. That is what political legitimacy looks like.
I know, it's been a while, but that's what it is.

16. Can you imagine if McCain/Palin had won?
They'd be dealing with arrestees and hosing out the streets for weeks.
