Police said the violence resulted in seven arrests.

One video appears to show a protester ripping a flag off a pro-Trump vehicle. Another shows two men in red Trump sweatshirts and a woman wearing an American flag shirt violently engaging with the counter-protesters.

It's difficult to tell from video footage which side escalated the brawl, but multiple people can be seen frantically punching and kicking at others once it breaks out.

Another video shows one of the cars involved in the caravan covered in red paint, which accounts on social media claim was thrown by the anti-Trump protesters.

Police confirmed that five men and two women were arrested after the dispute turned physical.

Charges against the suspects are currently pending, cops said.

No officers were injured in the attempt to control the violence.
