Witnesses to the incident say the two liberal men engaged the Trump supporters and a heated argument broke out. According to witnesses, the two liberal men started “harassing” a Trump supporter, so that man turned on his bullhorn and shouted in the liberal man’s face. The liberal reportedly took the bullhorn and that’s when things got crazy. Another Trump supporter came to the rescue and a massive fight ensued.
Three people were arrested Saturday after President Trump supporters clashed with Democratic counter-protesters during a small rally outside of the California Democratic Convention in Long Beach.
The altercation between the two groups broke out around 11:30 a.m. near Ocean Boulevard and Pine Avenue, according to the Long Beach Police Department. It started with verbal insults which escalated into punching and shoving.
Two of the three people arrested were injured and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. One of them was seen with lacerations to his face.
All three are now facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon that was not a firearm, police said.
“LBPD is committed to ensuring everyone’s 1st Amendment rights, but we also want to remind you that any violence of any kind will not be tolerated in our community,” the department said in a tweet.
The fight occurred as democratic supporters gathered for the weekend long Democratic Convention in Long Beach, including a presidential forum where five of the democratic candidates for president will discuss issues impacting Latinos, moderated by ABC7 anchor Marc Brown. [ABC 7]
