LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Los Angeles police officer was recovering Friday after being assaulted by a Trump protester during a demonstration in downtown Los Angeles.
CBS2’s Kara Finnstrom reported the woman who is suspected of assaulting the officer has been arrested.
Another person was arrested for vandalism during Thursday night’s demonstration, police said.
Officers gave dispersal orders to an aggressive group that refused to leave from Olympic Boulevard and Olive Street around midnight.
Around 185 people were arrested in total.
On Wednesday, 30 protesters were arrested when hundreds shut down portions of the 101 Freeway.
In a statement, Mayor Eric Garcetti said the right to free expression is “one of our greatest privileges as Americans,” but added that unlawful, dangerous behavior won’t be tolerated.
