"A couple of the members got into a violent attack on a pro-Trump member. It was at that point that an unlawful assembly was declared", Lt Max Subin told Fox News.
The pro-Trump supporter was injured in the face and received treatment from the Beverly Hills Fire Department.
Footage shared on social media shows a large presence of officers in riot gear formed in a line as counterprotesters arrive at the pro-Trump rally. On the other side, Trump supporters are chanting "USA" and waving American flags.
