LOS ANGELES -- Police in riot gear dispersed about 500 skateboarding fans who blocked Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles after turning out for a free movie premiere at the Vine Theatre.

Los Angeles police Sgt. Raul Jovel says several people threw rocks and bottles at officers during the clash Saturday night. At least two cars were damaged and glass doors at the theater were shattered.

Order was quickly restored after a tactical alert was declared and officers in riot gear arrived on the scene.

City News Service reports one person was arrested for failing to disperse. No injuries were reported.

The theater was hosting the premiere of the skateboard film "Bake and Destroy."
