Protests against the presidential election results have roiled cities across the country, including Los Angeles. Tomorrow, organizers are planning a march from MacArthur Park to downtown L.A. to voice their frustrations at a Trump presidency.

About 185 people were arrested and one officer injured in Los Angeles during a third night of protests over the presidential election of Donald Trump, police said.

The protests were peaceful for most of the afternoon and evening, Los Angeles police Sgt. Barry Montgomery told KPCC.

"At some point during the evening, things went awry. We had some folks out there doing vandalism and blocking roadways and all of those are things we just can't tolerate," Montgomery said.

Around midnight, a group refused to leave the area around Olympic Boulevard and Olive Street, and about 35 people were arrested. Another 150 people were arrested about an hour later near Cesar Chavez and Grand Avenue.
One officer was injured and treated at a hospital before being released.
