WATCH: Chaos in Los Angeles as BLM Protesters Clash with Police

Multiple reporters and Twitter users shared videos of Black Lives Matter protesters taking to the streets of Los Angeles Wednesday. FoxLA anchor Liz Habib shared a video of BLM protesters swarming a police car on the 101 freeway during their George Floyd protest.

Bill Melugin shared a video of BLM protesters blocking traffic.

Per DailyMail, a protester was thrown from the hood of a police cruiser in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday night as a Black Lives Matter demonstration calling for justice for George Floyd turned violent.

About 1,000 protesters descended on LA following the 46-year-old father-of-two died in Minneapolis Monday, moments after a white cop knelt on his neck for eight minutes until he passed out.

As protests entered their second day in Minnesota, tensions began building between law enforcement and African-American communities across America, with demonstrators calling for the four officers involved in Floyd’s death to be charged with murder.

The first break-off protest sprung up in downtown LA Wednesday afternoon and quickly escalated into violence.

Shocking aerial footage shows several protesters surrounding a California Highway Patrol cruiser and smashing the back windows on the 101 Freeway.

One protester clambered on the hood before tumbling to the ground when the police officer drove off. The man was seen lying motionless on the ground and covered in blood, but he did regain consciousness and was taken to hospital in an ambulance.

A second police cruiser that arrived at the scene was also attacked, had its windows smashed and was seen fleeing.
