An independent Denver police monitor said officers did nothing wrong during mass arrests on the first day of the Democratic National Convention.

Monitor Richard Rosenthal said Monday there is no evidence to support a complaint alleging officers lied about whether they gave an order to disperse before arresting more than 100 people.

The American Civil Liberties Union complaint also contended a police officer pretending to be a protester created a tense atmosphere when he confronted another officer. Rosenthal said the undercover officer acted appropriately.

The ACLU did not immediately return a call.
