While GOP front-runner Donald Trump was addressing an audience of his supporters in California, a different scenario was playing out right outside of the arena.

Trump’s rally was held in the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, Calif., as part of the push ahead of the June 7 primary in the state, where 172 delegates are at stake for Republicans.

Protesters also tried, unsuccessfully, to flip over a police car. Authorities were on the scene during the protests.

Arrests were made during the protests, according to local police.
