Caught On Cam: Truck Charges Protesters

Christian had previously attended "free speech" rallies in OR with other White Nationalists.

No one was injured in the Vancouver encounter, said police spokeswoman Lt. Kathy McNicholas.

Are man who had 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.

One person could be heard shouting "Get out of the road!" amid the chaos, and one person was seen dodging out of the truck's way as it raced through an intersection.

The truck revs its engines and reverses away from the marchers, but then drives forward through the crowd walking in the middle of Columbia Street, videos posted by people there show.

Counter-protesters changed their march's path and proceeded a street over to avoid the truck, but it re-appeared and cut marchers off.

Authorities managed to stop the driver and handcuff him, though police said he was later released without charges.

"The officers on the scene couldn't determine if his intent was to harm anyone or if it was because he feared for his safety and was trying to escape harm", she said. The case has been referred to a prosecuting attorney.

Police said 36-year-old Nicholas Partin (aka Alanna Partin), of Portland was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, and 34-year-old Shawna L. Gonzalez was arrested on a charge of reckless endangerment.

A change.org petition had collected nearly 800 signatures by early Monday evening urging authorities to file charges against the driver.

Another anti-fascist can be seen flinging something at the truck after it barrels backwards down the street towards the crowds of counter-protesters.

Patriot Prayer organizer Joey Gibson said the group only wanted to peacefully demonstrate for free speech, but antifa claimed the rally represented bigotry and fascism.

The man, whose identity has not been revealed, was handcuffed and placed in a patrol vehicle after he was seen behind the wheel of a black truck aggressively reversing towards Antifa protestors at the Patriot Prayer rally in Vancouver, the Willamette Week reports.

Two people were arrested in Vancouver in incidents unrelated to the pickup and seven people were arrested in Portland. The protest events and march were held in Terry Schrunk Plaza, Waterfront Park and roadways in the downtown area over the course of several hours. "No jail for this proud US patriot", he says.

The police asked tipsters to not share information through its social media accounts, and to instead call the department's tip line at 360-487-7399 so an officer can follow up to retrieve any videos or photos.
