LMPD footage showing car hitting a protester

The driver seen in footage running over a protester in downtown Louisville Wednesday turned themselves in to Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD). However, the department is not charging her.

The incident took place near 6th Street and Liberty Street in the morning rush was captured on a real-time LMPD crime camera.

Police informed that the protesters blocked the intersection and were standing in front of the woman’s car with a megaphone. Then, during a verbal confrontation with the protesters, somebody ripped out one of the driver’s dreadlocks.

When someone pulled a gun out, she informed police she accelerated her car away and accidentally hit a protester.

When she stopped at a red light a block later, someone pointed a gun at her. Police state that a man, who is seen in the footage, is 21-year-old Darius Anderson. He passed the gun off to 19-year-old Brioanna Richards.

Anderson and Richards are charged with rioting, disorderly conduct, and blocking a highway. Anderson also faces extra charges of 1st-degree wanton endangerment.

Riots and demonstrations have spread in the United States after a cop was caught on tape with his knee on the neck of a man later identified as George Floyd.
