Mexico World Cup Fans Force Closure of Ramps on 5 Freeway in Pacoima

Fans on the streets cleared the streets as officers on foot and in patrol cars moved in, according to television news footage. At least two people were taken into custody.

The crowds were facing off with officers near Laurel Canyon and Van Nuys boulevards. Late Monday, officers declared an unlawful assembly and ordered crowds to disperse.

Around the same time, the Los Angeles Police Department issued a tactical alert, which requires officers citywide to remain on duty.
