DENVER – A man drove his car through a crowd of protesters calling for justice in the Breonna Taylor case outside the Colorado State Capitol late Wednesday night.
Video of the incident shows a small crowd of protesters surrounding the vehicle and blocking the man’s way, banging on the hood of his car at times, before he accelerated and drove his vehicle through demonstrators.
Moments before, the crowd had asked the driver to turn around as there were still people on the street, online reports say.
The female victim was not seriously injured.
The driver was detained by Denver police at the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Broadway seconds after the incident.
It’s unclear what charges the driver will face at this point, if any.
