Police fire rubber bullets at anti-Trump protesters in Santa Ana; 10 arrested

SANTA ANA, Calif. (KABC) -- Authorities in Santa Ana on Wednesday evening fired rubber bullets into a crowd of anti-Donald Trump protesters, ten of whom were arrested after demonstrating against the president-elect.

The crowd numbered between 200 and 300 people, some of whom damaged four patrol vehicles during the incident, according to the Santa Ana Police Department. One car's windshield was shattered after being hit with a large rock.

At least one demonstrator ignited fireworks in the middle of a street while being confronted at a distance by police and sheriff's deputies in riot gear.

"He's for the wealthy, he's not for the people," one man at the scene said of Trump. "He's for the money."

The protest took place amid similar marches and rallies in downtown Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle and New York.

"The way he's talking to the same stuff, it's not right," a man in Santa Ana said. "It seems like he has something against Hispanic people."
