VENICE BEACH, Calif. — Two people were arrested and a police officer was injured after violence erupted when hundreds of people who had gathered for a drum circle on the Venice boardwalk were told to disperse Sunday night, authorities said. 

Between 400 and 500 people had gathered during the evening as part of a weekly drum circle when police arrived, Lt. Marco Munoz said.

Video from the scene showed officers lined up on the beach at one point, and some members of the crowd throwing bottles at them. One officer was treated for injuries he sustained after a bottle hit his leg, according to Munoz. Another bottle broke the window of a police vehicle, he said.
