Police arrested several people sat a "Make America Great Again" rally that took place in Huntington Beach, Calif., Saturday, reported The Hill.

The fight broke out around noon after pro-Trump supporters and anti-Trump protesters clashed at the rally. Three people were arrested at the event "on suspicion of illegal use of pepper spray," reported the Associated Press.

The pro-Trump rally was in support of veterans, first responders, and law enforcement. Organizers estimated that around 3,000 people would be attending the event. It was supposed to take place at the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa, Calif., but it was later moved because officials believed there was potential for a clash between atendees and protesters, reported KCBS, the local television station.

Organizers of the rally, who were seeking donations to assist the homeless veteran community, said the event was meant to show that "we love our country and we want to show gratitude to the men and women who put their own lives on the line every day."
