California Man Arrested After Pointing Rifle At Protesters Confronting Trump Supporters




A California man was arrested after he was caught on video pointing a rifle in the direction of hundreds of demonstrators during an intense confrontation that occurred amid the George Floyd protests Monday in Upland, reports KCBS-TV.

Upland police reported that they arrested 39-year-old Jacob Bracken of Rancho Cucamonga, charging him with assault with a deadly weapon.




Cell phone video from the scene appears to show Bracken pointing a rifle at protesters as they move across the street towards a group of pro-Trump supporters, leading to scuffles.

“Alright everybody, back the f—k up,” he yells as he walks in the direction of the protesters.

According to police, the crowd was ordered to disperse after blocking the street and violating the curfew orders which began at 6 p.m.





“Upland protest had a few tense moments, but overall ends peacefully!” Upland police wrote on their Facebook page.

Another video captured a man holding a large rock and threatening to throw it at a female protester’s “f-cking head!”

A beautiful scene also played out during Monday’s Upland protest.
