PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Two F-16 fighters under the direction of North American Aerospace Defense Command intercepted a general aviation aircraft in the vicinity of Los Angeles shortly after noon today, MST.

Two F-16 fighters scrambled out of March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County, California, to respond to a temporary flight restriction violation by a Cessna 182 aircraft over Los Angeles. After intercepting the aircraft, the F-16s followed it until it landed without incident at approximately 12:30 p.m. MST, where the plane was met by local law enforcement.
NORAD fighters respond to infraction by general aviation aircraft over L.A.

According to a tweet here the plane was found to be carrying 10 kilos of weed. DOH!

My office is on the backside of JWA, and no matter how many times I see it, or who is inside, I still get a thrill when Marine One flies over

With so many people in town I notice CHP is running multiple Guardian motorcade details split between Blue and Tac 3.
They also seem to have two Helo's working out of Hawthorne airport assigned to the events.
