Tempers flared but Saturday's anti-Trump protest in downtown Los Angeles remained mostly peaceful.
Approximately 200 people turned out for the rally — and police officers nearly outnumbered the demonstrators, according to our media partner NBC4.
A small group of Donald Trump supporters also showed up. Despite verbal confrontations between the two camps, little violence occured.
Two people were arrested. One man in a costume for the "purple party" was arrested for trying to instigate a fight.
The rally started at 1 p.m. in Pershing Square. Organizers from Refuse Fascism called for a peaceful event but LAPD Deputy Chief Horace Frank said after recent events in Las Vegas and New York, police are taking extra precautions.
"We want to make sure that we're properly prepared and in a position to assist those who wish to exercise their First Amendment rights in a peaceful and lawful manner," he told KPCC.
The demonstration was much smaller than anti-Trump protests that have occurred during the past 12 months. It was one of 18 rallies that happened around the country on Saturday.
