Officers injured, five people arrested following fight at Huntington Beach

Five people were arrested after a brawl broke out at Huntington Beach Wednesday night.

The fight broke out after Huntington Beach police approached a woman drinking alcohol on the beach near Tower 11 on the pier's north side. 

Police say the woman's friends then jumped the officers-- causing a fight to break out. 

According to police, an unspecified number of officers were injured, including one who was taken to a hospital. That officer is expected to make a full recovery, police say.

"This is a good reminder to everyone that we have a no tolerance approach to alcohol on our beaches,'' the department said in a statement.

Officials say the fight was not connected to the U.S. Open of Surfing taking place near the Huntington Beach Pier.
