Independenet journalist Andy Ngo shared video from Los Angeles of police and Antifa clashing outside of Wi Spa on July 17.

Antifa gathered to oppose conservatives who were protesting Wi Spa, where the incident involving a biological male who identifies as a female took place.

LAPD said it found numerous weapons at the scene, including knives and mace. Officers pushed back pro-LGBTQ counter-protesters and declared the scene an unlawful assembly.

Officers had smoke bombs and other projectiles thrown at them, according to department officials.
