Woman charged with attempted murder for driving through protesters – By ABC Newsroom (ABC News) / Sept 27 2020
A California woman has been charged with attempted murder after driving through a group of dueling protesters during a “Caravan for Justice” event Saturday afternoon.
The dueling protests held in Yorba Linda, about 35 miles east of Los Angeles, quickly boiled over into animosity as Black Lives Matter demonstrators clashed with Donald Trump supporters.
“Approximately 30 minutes after the protests began, we began to receive reports of physical altercations occurring between the two protest groups, including at least one individual who was pepper-sprayed by another protestor,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
The crowd grew to about 250 people and due to the violence and “reports of individuals within the crowd having weapons” the sheriff’s department declared an unlawful assembly.
