Police arrested 17 people after violent protesters destroyed police cars, threw debris at passing vehicles and stopped traffic outside Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Orange County, Calif., Thursday night.

According to the Los Angeles Times, protesters, mostly Latinos upset about Trump’s comments about immigrants, smashed out the back window of a police cruiser, popped the tires on a police SUV and tried to flip another cruiser.


Another group of protesters blocked an entrance ramp to the 55 Freeway with park benches and threw rocks and debris at vehicles on the highway.

The chaos subsided around 12 a.m. EST, but not before authorities arrested 10 males and 7 females for suspicion of unlawful assembly.
