Fighting erupted Friday night outside a Donald Trump rally in Richmond, Virginia, prompting police to quickly detain five people.
The violence broke out near the Richmond Coliseum, where the Republican presidential candidate was holding an event with supporters. Images from the scene showed a crowd tussling with a line of police officers.
Tensions initially appeared to escalate when a Trump supporter entered a crowd of protesters and began shouting.
Protesters later marched through the streets of downtown Richmond, while police in riot gear formed lines.
Friday's rally and protest also drew a variety of unusual political signs, one of which accused the candidate of hating "taco Tuesday."
And still another protest poster shared a scatalogical poem.
