A man used pepper spray against anti-Trump protesters in Santa Monica
At a Saturday rally against Donald Trump on the pier in Santa Monica, a fight broke out between liberals and supporters of the current president of the United States, resulting in a man in a red cap ‘MAGA’ using a pepper spray.
The entire conflict was captured on camera. The shots clearly show how the protesters enter the fray, when suddenly one of the participants takes out a chemical bottle from his pants and sprays it in the direction of a small group of fighters.
According to authorities, the offender was arrested. This is not his first violation. He was previously charged with another violation, for which he was on parole.
An additional investigation is underway in this case. The police suspect that the conflict was specifically provoked, perhaps the arrested man had accomplices. The video shows how in a few seconds to a fight, the detainee communicates with another man.
