A California man was arrested Monday for pointing a rifle at police brutality protesters.

Video shows the man, later identified as 39-year-old Jacob Bracken, jump out of his pickup truck and point his weapon at protesters heading across a street in Upland to confront supporters of President Donald Trump, reported KCBS-TV.

“All right, everybody — back the f*ck up,” he shouts toward the crowd.

Police had ordered the crowd to disperse after blocking the street after the 6 p.m. curfew.

Some of the demonstrators left, but police said some of them stayed behind and began tossing rocks and water bottles at officers.

Police used pepper balls and sting balls to push the crowd back.

Witnesses said a group of pro-Trump demonstrators carrying American flags were blocking traffic to cross the street to instigate the protesters, and the two groups began arguing in the street after Bracken, of Rancho Cucamonga, pointed his rifle toward the crowd.

No other arrests were reported.

Published

on

The Texas Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal by the Republican Party of Texas seeking to host its in-person convention this week in Houston. Justices also denied a similar petition spearheaded by other party officials and Houston activist Steve Hotze.

Monday's news likely kills the party's chances of holding its in-person gathering as planned, which was set to begin July 16 at Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center. As of Saturday, the State Republican Executive Committee, considered the party's governing board, had reaffirmed the party's commitment to proceeding with the event, which was expected to draw roughly 6,000 people. Party officials had argued that its gathering was protected under both the Texas and U.S. Constitutions and should be allowed to continue as planned.
