A man with a Confederate flag decal on his truck was arrested over the weekend for trying to run down a group of Antifa activists in Vancouver, Washington.
The driver, who has not been publicly identified, attempted to run his truck into Antifa demonstrators who were in the area protesting the right-wing “Vancouver Patriot Prayer” rally that was occurring in the city, reported Raw Story.
The driver, whose black Chevy Silverado had Oregon license plates, drove past a group of demonstrators who threw water bottles and rocks at his truck.
He then put his truck in reverse and tried to drive backward over protesters.
After realizations from the Charlottesville terrorist attack, protesters quickly saw what he was trying to do and they were all able to escape safely.
“The driver continued to drive in reverse for nearly a block, stopping at the next intersection and revving his engine,” reported Willamette Week “The protesters yelled for everyone to clear the street and changed their path to escape the truck, walking down 6th Avenue to Washington Street. At that point, however, the truck re-appeared cutting the marchers off.”
That is when a police vehicle pulled up directly behind the driver, and the man was arrested.
