MILWAUKEE (WSAU) The latest "tea party" rally draws a crowd of eight to 10 thousand to a lakefront park in Milwaukee.

People at the rally say they are protesting runaway government spending. Similar rallies have been held around the country to protest tax policies under the Obama administration, growing government spending and bailouts for struggling businesses.

A 50 year old man was injured in the fight that broke out late Saturday afternoon. He was taken to a Milwaukee hospital with face lacerations. It's not clear what caused the fight. Police are still investigating.

Last weekend thousands of demonstrators showed they were fed up with government spending by marching on the U.S. Capitol.
