NFL: Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers Practice Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers and Rams held a scrimmage on Wednesday at UC Irvine and the #FightForLA turned into more of a literal fight with three separate altercations occurring during the two hours the teams shared the field. The first of the fights occurred when the Rams’ (apparently not very smart) cornerback Trumaine Johnson took off his own helmet and tried to punch Dontrelle Inman who was still wearing his.

Johnson was asked later why he removed his helmet and blamed his poor decision making on being from Stockton.

After the punches were thrown, a second Rams player, Nickell Robey-Coleman, ran in and pushed Inman to the ground. Keenan Allen defended his teammate and things degenerated into a wider scale brawl.

The other two fights were somewhat less interesting. ESPN reported:

Chargers receiver Jamaal Jones got into a tussle with Rams cornerback E.J. Gaines a few minutes later, and that had the two teams at each other again.

Gaines wasn't finished, as he also got into an altercation with Chargers defensive end Chris McCain during a special-teams drill.

Chargers offensive tackle Russell Okung chimed in on Twitter after the scrimmage.

If you are a Chargers fan, you have to love the culture that new head coach Anthony Lynn is building.
