The driver, who was identified as Jacob Garza, 20, allegedly drove through a stop sign at high speed.
As he did so, Garza allegedly threw a bottle at Trump supporters before crashing into another vehicle that rolled on its side, Santa Maria Police Sgt Nate Totorica said.
Footage showed Garza being wrestled to the ground and placed in a choke hold by an unidentified man.
Officers shut down the street to interview witnesses, but Totorica said "it's hard to tell what happened first.
"Some witnesses suggest the suspect tried to run and some people grabbed hold of him. It's hard to tell what's self defense."
Garza was cited for reckless driving and causing injury, as one passenger from the collision suffered from a fractured arm, while the other experienced swelling. They were both transported to hospital.
Garza did not return Santa Maria Times' call for comment.
