Driver pulls BOW & ARROW on protesters blocking road in Salt Lake City (VIDEOS)

Driver pulls BOW & ARROW on protesters blocking road in Salt Lake City (VIDEOS)
A man produced a bow and arrow during a confrontation with Black Lives Matter protesters in Salt Lake City, Utah. The authorities imposed a curfew and called in the National Guard after the rallies escalated into rioting.

The incident took place as the protesters blocking a road clashed with one of the drivers. At one point, the man pulled out a bow and arrow, and yelled “All lives matter!”

The driver took aim with the weapon several times, but was quickly swarmed by protesters and beaten. After overpowering the man, the activists smashed the windows of his car and overturned it.

The demonstrations in Salt Lake City and several other major cities across the US were sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The rallies were initially peaceful but gradually spiraled into rioting, forcing authorities in multiple states to impose curfews and call in the National Guard.
