LOS ANGELES - A police car was set on fire during a large gathering in Hollywood Saturday night that had to be broken up by police and firefighters.
The Los Angeles Police Department was called out to the area of Hollywood Boulevard and N. Las Palmas Avenue around 8 p.m. Saturday. Officers told FOX 11 that officers were requesting backup because of the large group and because they were setting off fireworks.
Videos on social media showed skateboarders riding on ramps set on either side of the flaming car.
By 8:30 p.m., officers worked to push people out of the lot with the flaming car. The fire was put out several minutes later. Some people in the crowd appeared to throw bottles. It's not clear if anyone was arrested.
