A California man was captured and charged with attempted murder of Los Angeles police officers Friday as pro-abortion demonstrators marched the streets in the wake of the SCOTUS abortion ruling. The landmark Supreme Court decision in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case, which overturned the long-standing 1973 Roe v. Wade judgment, spurred violent public upheaval across the country, as Breitbart News reported.

The protests went long into the night before members of the crowd began “throwing fireworks and other makeshift weapons” at the officers, police alleged. Such was the press of people the LAPD declared an illegal assembly late in the night after protesters filled downtown streets and some briefly blocked traffic on two freeways.

He was charged with the attempted murder of a police officer, KTLA reported. At some point in the night, Bernado allegedly attempted to take an officer’s baton and was subsequently taken into custody, the New York Post reported. She faces possible charges for resisting arrest. “I condemn the violence against officers that occurred last night and into today,” LAPD Chief Michel Moore said in a news release. “Individuals participating in such criminal activity are not exercising their 1st Amendment rights in protest of the Supreme Court decision, rather, they are acting as criminals. The Department will vigorously pursue prosecution of these individuals.” Hundreds of activists assembled outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, DC, on Saturday, one day after the court overruled the decades-old landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

The Supreme Court overturned both Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in a 5–4 opinion Friday, marking a historic win for the pro-life movement. The court ruled the Constitution does not include a right to abortion and flipped control of the issue back to individual states.
