Several protesters, believed to be Antifa, descended on the University of California, Davis, to disrupt an event Tuesday evening headlined by conservative pundit and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.

The school’s Turning Point chapter has organized the event. The protesters mostly wore black and clashed with students, police officers, and event attendees. They smashed windows, hurled eggs, and used pepper spray after surrounding the building. They also blocked people from entering the University Credit Union Center, which was the venue for the event.

Kirk is married to Erika Frantzve. The couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter, in August 2022.

She was first tagged in a photo with Charlie in June 2019, which led to people thinking that they started dating around this time.

Kirk proposed to Erika, in early December 2020. “When God crafts your love story, you get to marry your closest friend,” Frantzve said with photographs of the proposal on Instagram. She got married on May 8, 2021, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
