Police Clash With Protesters in Anaheim

Violent clashes between protestors and police continued Tuesday night in Anaheim, California, as officers reportedly fired rubber bullets, bean bag rounds, and pepper balls into crowds gathered outside city hall to protest alleged police brutality. Police said at least five people were arrested on suspicion of assault and resisting arrest, while a reporter from the Orange County Register was struck by a rock, according to the Los Angeles Times. Journalist Tim Pool said he was attacked by officers while he was covering the protest.

The violence erupted after council members inside Anaheim City Hall voted unanimously to ask the U.S. attorney’s office to investigate the shootings of two men last weekend. After demonstrators were shut out of Tuesday’s council meeting, they tossed rocks and bottles at officers and ignored police warnings to disperse, notes the Associated Press.
