LOS ANGELES — Police on horseback, backed by officers clad in riot gear, arrested at least four people after crowds of fans spilled onto the streets Monday evening in Huntington Park to celebrate Mexico’s World Cup victory.

The fans, many of them waving Mexican flags, were moving on sidewalks and on Pacific Boulevard in the city’s downtown area, where some of the fans surrounded a vehicle and began rocking it, according to television news footage. Huntington Park is south of downtown Los Angeles.

One woman was arrested on suspicion of throwing a bottle at officers on horseback. Two other people were arrested on suspicion of public intoxication, and another for failing to disperse, according to police.

One woman received minor injuries in an incident involving an officer’s horse, police said.

Television news footage showed a man being wrestled to the ground and handcuffed by three Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies.

The agency had dispatched personnel to assist Huntington Park police. Some officers cruised the area in dark armored vehicles.

Another women could be seen running from officers, who took her to the ground, according to TV news footage.

Earlier Monday, Mexico defeated Croatia in World Cup group play in Brazil. The 3-1 win ensured that Mexico moved on to the round of 16 in the international soccer tournament.

Allies of former President Donald Trump have advised members of the Republican Party to cool down their inflammatory rhetoric toward the United States Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation following the execution of a search warrant at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida on Monday.

Trump supporters, right-wing pundits, and lawmakers have been whipped into a frenzy over what Trump called a "raid" by federal agents in pursuit of classified documents removed from the White House during Trump's departure from office.

On August 20, 2022, Donald Trump will have been gone from the White House for 19 months. But Trump, unlike other former presidents, hasn’t disappeared from the headlines by any means — and on Monday, August 8, the most prominent topic on cable news was the FBI executing a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in South Florida. Countless Republicans, from Fox News hosts to Trump himself, have been furiously railing against the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). And in an article published by Politico on August 11, reporters Kyle Cheney and Meridith McGraw describe the atmosphere of “paranoia” and suspicion that has become even worse in Trumpworld since the search.

“A wave of concern and even paranoia is gripping parts of Trumpworld as federal investigators tighten their grip on the former president and his inner circle,” Cheney and McGraw explain. “In the wake of news that the FBI agents executed a court-authorized search warrant at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, Trump’s allies and aides have begun buzzing about a host of potential explanations and worries. Among those being bandied about is that the search was a pretext to fish for other incriminating evidence, that the FBI doctored evidence to support its search warrant — and then planted some incriminating materials and recording devices at Mar-a-Lago for good measure — and even that the timing of the search was meant to be a historical echo of the day President Richard Nixon resigned in 1974.”
