Three people were arrested during a right-wing rally and a counter demonstration Sunday evening in Laguna Beach according to police. 

Video showed small fights happening and some punches being thrown as the two sides confronted each other. It is still unsure what charges the arrestees might face. 

A group called "America First!" held a rally that was against illegal immigration and showed their support for President Trump. 

"I'm a strong Republican and that's why I'm here. ... I think he's a good guy," Mike Matthews said of Trump. "Freedom of speech - that's my main reason for being here."
