A brawl broke out at President Trump’s vandalized Hollywood star, making it the second scuffle at the location in just a few days.
A man wearing Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hat and shouting, "We got America great again!" was left with a bleeding cut on his nose at the scene after his presence appeared to rub someone the wrong way Sunday night.
The encounter became so violent that the Los Angeles Police Department had to intervene.
“He came up and was like, ‘I’m going to pull off his hat,’” a witness told KCBS. “He went up and pulled the [Make America Great Again hat off]. Then after that, everything just went crazy, they started fighting.”
Another witness, Louie Martinez, said another man in the crowd yelled, “That’s my son. Don’t be going after my son.”
Martinez added, “He got up in his face, starts pushing him. Then the guy with the megaphone head-butted him."
LAPD eventually tackled the younger man to the ground and arrested him for battery against a police officer after he reportedly charged police.
The star on Los Angeles’ Hollywood Walk of Fame appears to be a spot of contention. Just four nights ago, a group of Trump supporters and a group of protesters ended up in a multi-person brawl. No arrests were made following the incident.
Tensions around Trump’s star have been heightened since last Wednesday, when 24-year-old Austin Clay attacked the marker with a pickax.
Clay was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism and released on $20,000 bail thanks to a GoFundMe campaign in his support.
Supporters are now raising money for Clay’s legal representation through GoFundMe.
