Multiple charges have been brought by L.A. prosecutors against two men arrested Saturday in the Rose Bowl parking lot brawl before the USC-UCLA football game.

"Joshua Elder, 24, and Steven Michael Radu, 27, were charged with one count each of resisting arrest. According to prosecutors, Elder is also accused of exhibiting a deadly weapon and Radu is charged with trying to free Elder from police custody," reports the LA Times.

The near riot involving 50-75 people, started around 4:30 p.m. in parking Lot 1 where tailgaters had been drinking since 6:30 a.m. Two officers suffered minor injuries, one man was stabbed in the back and another man is healing from a face injury that left a knife tip embedding in his cheekbone.
