Video: LAPD officer hit in head at May Day protest

Some protesters appeared to swarm a smaller number of LAPD officers

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — A largely peaceful May Day protest in downtown Los Angeles turned tense on Tuesday evening as police clashed with protesters.

The incident occurred near 4th and Hill streets when some protesters appeared to swarm a smaller number of LAPD officers, who in turn called for backup.

A police official said a female officer was struck in the head with a skateboard and taken to a hospital. The impact of the blow dented her helmet, the official said, but her injury appears not to be life-threatening.
