In Yorba Linda, California, two people were wounded after a car drove through a crowd of Trump supporters during a Black Lives Matter protest that took place in the afternoon of Saturday, September 26.
The Black Lives Matter protest, organized by Caravan for Justice, clashed with Trump counter-protesters.
Tatiana Rita Turner, 40, who was attending the Caravan for Justice protest, was arrested for attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon for driving her car into the group of counter-protesters.
The two injured counter-protesters were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, but the Sheriff then described their wounds as major. One of the injured protesters was confirmed to have suffered a broken leg.
Another arrest occurred at the protest for Jason Mancuso, 46, for failure to obey a dispersal order issued by authorities.
According to Orange County prosecutors, Turner purposely drove into a crowd of the counter-protesters, willing to kill or injure anyone that wanted to stand in her way.
A statement given by District Attorney Todd Spitzer said, “She [Turner] positioned her vehicle to be used as a backup weapon, and she used that vehicle as a deadly weapon, willing to injure and kill those who stood in her way.”
Turner’s defense lawyer said that Turner tried to get help from local deputies when her protest started to turn hostile but was unsuccessful.
According to NBC Los Angeles, Turner was later charged with “attempted murder with a sentencing enhancement for attempted premeditated murder, making it a potential life-sentence case. She is also charged with six counts of assault with a deadly weapon, a count of mayhem and two counts of illegal use of tear gas, all felonies.”
