VIDEO: Man beaten for shooting arrows at protesters, car burned




A man identified as Brandon McCormick who reportedly fired arrows at protesters in Utah this weekend met his waterloo as he got beaten and also lost his car.

WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the incident occurred in Salt Lake City on Saturday May 30 during a protest against the killing of George Floyd.

According to report, McCormick emerged from his vehicle with a hunting bow which he brandished towards the crowd and also threatened to shoot them with.

He started shooting arrows at the crowd after a brief conversation with one of the protesters who asked him “if he’s serious and considers himself American”.

This irked the crowd who swarmed around him and started beating him up.

KSLTV reported that SLC police officers managed to pull the man away from the crowd and detain him.

It was reportedly at this time the crowd began smashing his car windows and flipping it over before setting it on fire.

When interviewed after the counter-attack by the protesters, the man claimed that he was beaten by two “black African American men” for screaming “all lives matter”.  McCormick who gave a much different account after the incident which was captured on video, said;

“First, I got beat up when I yelled ‘All Lives Matter.’ Then I pulled out weapons and I got beat up some more. The cops grabbed me and my car got totaled … I lost everything, coming down here to try to protect [officers] with what weapons I had … I back up the law enforcement. I know some cops are bad. I know some people are racists are bad.”
