Woman Charged With Attempted Murder For Driving Through Trump Supporters

A woman was arrested after a BLM protest turned ugly yesterday. The woman drove her car through a bunch of Trump supporters who mounted a counter-protest to the BLM protest.

The scene was chaotic with people on the ground reporting in real-time: “Someone ran their car through a crowd of Trump supporters. OC Sheriffs took the person into custody. Ambulances were dispatched, but I don’t have information on injuries

A car just drove through a crowd. The crowd then chased after the white sedan. This person was hurt.”

The woman was arrested and charged with attempted murder.

From The OC Register:

A Black Lives Matter protest against police brutality and systemic racism was met with a counter-protest and turned violent when a car drove through the crowd in Yorba Linda on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 26.

The driver, a 40-year-old woman described as a Black Lives Matter supporter, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder, authorities said.

The BLM march took place on Imperial Highway near Yorba Linda Boulevard, with counter-protesters shouting insults while carrying American flags and Trump 2020 banners gathered along the other side. At one point, the counter-protesters crossed the six-lane highway and confronted the BLM group. Face-to-face, the sides alternately shouted “Black Lives Matter” and “U.S.A.”

As the conflict grew more heated, with reports that some people had weapons, sheriff’s officials declared an unlawful assembly and ordered all protesters to disperse.

Moments later, a white sedan in the Yorba Linda Public Library parking lot accelerated through the crowd.
