The LAPD is are aware of an incident in Hollywood involving several vehicles and a large group of protestors. Here is the information we can verify at this time. pic.twitter.com/ttqpnziVo8— LAPD HQ (@LAPDHQ) September 25, 2020
A driver in a white prius happened upon a demonstration blocking an intersection in Hollywood and attempted to calmly maneuver through the crowd without injuring anyone. Rioters, doing what they love most, began harassing the driver and pounding on their windows. Upon making it through the intersection, the driver assumed they were home free and clear of any more trouble from the street agitators.
They were wrong.
A chase had developed behind them, and a pickup truck laden with Black Lives Matter—and an antifa ‘journalist’—followed in pursuit. A second vehicle, a green convertible, was close behind.
MOMENTS AGO: Prius drives through a protest in Hollywood, protestors then chase the vehicle down, smash the windows with a skateboard while attempting to pull the driver out of the car.

The black pickup managed to maneuver in front of the white Prius, causing it to come to a stop, either striking the bumper of the truck or missing it by mere inches. One occupant from the truck hopped out and approached the drivers window and can be seen punching the motorist and attempting to pull them from the vehicle.
The driver of the Prius attempted to go in reverse to escape, thereby striking the green convertible—also filled with Black Lives Matter members—behind them. Those occupants joined the fray, one of them using a skateboard to smash the windows of the vehicle. Another Black Lives Matter supporter struck the car with a bike. One stabbed at the windows with a flagpole.
The driver then managed to escape, but soon after they were detained by the police.
