A mixed martial arts fighter wrestled a Trump demonstrator on the ground during a flag-waving ceremony after allegedly attacking another woman.
Tara LaRosa was part of a group of people who marched in honor of Veterans Day on an overpass 84 on Sunday in Portland, Oregon.
An unknown woman became angry with the group and a physical fight ensued between her and LaRosa.
LaRosa, 41, a professional MMA hunter, had previously posted footage of the group marching before the procedure took a violent turn.

Footage shows how LaRosa lies on the woman while she tries to restrain her, while LaRosa can hear her tell her to relax.
The woman then says: & # 39; I am a professor, get rid of me. & # 39; LaRosa then hears her say: & # 39; Calm please & # 39 ;, as a man in the background says to the woman: & # 39; You're going to jail, you're not going to be a professor for long. & # 39;
LaRosa repeatedly tells her to stay calm because people accuse her of attacking LaRosa. She lets her go and the woman sits against the bridge while she catches her breath.
Portland Police Sgt. Kevin Allen said no arrests were made after investigating the incident and viewing the footage. He said, however, that the case was referred to the public prosecutor's office for assessment.
He told The Oregonian: & # 39; There are conflicting versions of the events, so we collect all the information we can and refer it to the public prosecutor. & # 39;
After the incident, LaRosa tweeted that the woman who identified herself as the professor started the fight.
She tweeted: & The professor started the fight. She tried to engage me in a verbal confrontation, I turned my back and ignored her.
& # 39; She then walked further down the viaduct and tried to involve others in the same way. I didn't see the fight begin. I broke off the fight so she didn't get hurt. & # 39;
LaRosa was born in New Jersey, a mixed martial artist and her most controversial successes took place during a competition at BodogFight. She participated in a Veterans Day march on Sunday
LaRosa also posted images of the same woman when she appears to be falling to another demonstrator and said it proved she was the aggressor
LaRosa also posted images of the same woman when she appears to be falling to another demonstrator and said it proved she was the aggressor.
She claims: & # 39; NEW video of yesterday's altercation at the Flagan & # 39; s Flag wave in Portland, OR about I-84.
& # 39; She failed to fight with me, so she chose someone else. In this video she clearly attacks another woman and throws the first shot. I stopped the fight and made sure her didn't hurt.
LaRosa had streamed the march live on her Twitter account, but the video does not show how the fight between her and the woman started.
She films herself after the incident and says: & I am, however, for that, I keep people safe. It is what I do, it is a pity that it has come to that.
& # 39; It's not fun, it's not what it's all about, it's not why we're here, it's nonsense. We stood here and then this woman arrived and attacked.
& # 39; We stood here for three minutes and said a lot of things, and she attacked one of the women with our group. And I had to put her down, I don't feel good about that, but it is what it is. & # 39;
& # 39; I didn't bump, I kept her on the ground until the police came. & # 39;
LaRosa is a mixed martial artist born in New Jersey and her most controversial successes occurred during the BodogFight competition, where she became the first and only BodogFight ladies bantamweight champion.
