Crowds Block Streets in Huntington Park after World Cup Soccer Win

Posted: Updated:
 CNS/FOX -At least one person was taken into custody in
Huntington Park today in connection with a celebration following Mexico's
advancing to the second round of the World Cup.
   Law enforcement officers from several agencies sought to control
hundreds of unruly fans, who hit the streets in Huntington Park, Huntington
Park police Detective Elsa Cobian told City News Service about 6 p.m.
   Celebrants darted in and out of traffic and rocked some vehicles that
tried to get through intersections, Cobian said.
   The trouble began about 3:30 p.m., a half-hour after Mexico completed a
3-1 victory over Croatia in Brazil, Cobian said.
   "I heard that some of the people came from a viewing party at El Club
on Pacific Boulevard and some from the plaza over by Florence Avenue," Cobian
continued. "They're not complying with orders to disperse from the officers at
the scene."
   Huntington Park had invoked the mutual aid agreement with surrounding
municipalities and officers from its police department were joined by mounted
sheriff's units and special weapons teams, officers from police departments in
Santa Monica and other cities and California Highway Patrol officers, who
handled traffic control.
   Pacific Boulevard was closed in both directions between Florence and
Gage avenues as police sought to restore order, Cobian said.
