One person was stabbed, the Los Angeles Times reported.
"A crowd of several hundred people, many holding American flags and signs calling for 'medical freedom,' had descended on City Hall around 2 p.m. for the planned rally," the newspaper reported. "A fight erupted on the corner of 1st and Spring streets shortly after 2:30 p.m., as counterprotesters in all black and anti-vaccine demonstrators draped in American flag garb and memorabilia bearing former President Trump's face traded punches and threw items at one another."
