MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities say an 18-year-old motorist in Tennessee has been charged with recklessly driving into a group of demonstrators who were protesting police brutality, striking four.
According to police documents, Anthony Marcuzzo slowly drove his Chevrolet Tahoe into a line of people “and continued to move forward, pushing through the four demonstrators” during a Friday protest in Memphis.
A woman was carried 20 feet as she hung onto the driver’s side mirror. She was treated at a hospital for minor injuries. Marcuzzo remained on the scene but was released.
Police reviewed surveillance video and charged Marcuzzo on Saturday with reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
