At least 1 person has been arrested in Huntington Park after Mexico's World Cup victory over Croatia brought fans into the streets. 

Huntington Park police detective Elsa Cobian told City News Service that the trouble began at around 3:30 p.m., when fans from nearby bars took over the streets and refused to disperse.

"I heard that some of the people came from a viewing party at El Club on Pacific Boulevard and some from the plaza over by Florence Avenue,'' Cobian told CNS. "They're not complying with orders to disperse from the officers at the scene.''

ABC7 and the L.A. Times shared scenes from the melee on Twitter.
