A Black Lives Matter supporter faces attempted murder charges after allegedly driving her car through a swarm of southern California Trump supporters on Saturday. Tatiana Turner, 40, of Long Beach, California, plowed her car through the Yorba Linda crowd at around 3 p.m., leaving two demonstrators with non-life threatening injuries, Orange County police said.
The incident occurred after violent clashes between BLM supporters and Trump supporters caused police to declare an unlawful assembly and order the crowds to diverge. Counter-protesters crossed six-lane Imperial Highway and confronted the BLM protesters, who were participating in an event called “Caravan for Justice,” authorities said.
Turner, who was arrested on the scene and booked to the county jail, also faces a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. The incident marked the second time a driver struck a southern California protest in two days.
