A trucker from Minnesota was is now facing charges for narrowly missing protesters blocking Interstate 35 nearly five months ago. You might remember the incident as it made national news. The trucker was travelling at highway speeds when he encountered an extremely large group of protesters blocking the Minnesota highways just days after George Floyd was killed. The driver, who navigated the truck around protesters who fell in the path of the truck, stopped without hitting anyone. For this, he was dragged from the truck and beaten by the crowd of protesters. Many of whom yelled that they should throw him off the interstate overpass. Police were able to rescue the driver, only to face the political implications that we have seen too many times and decided to keep the driver in custody, without charges for several days.
The driver was eventually released, only to find out five months later he will face charges. Not a single protester was arrested for his assault.
