Hey, Ohio- You may need to check the water in Columbus for high levels of mercury.
Blaze: Eldon Hawkins is 58 years old and has cerebral palsy, the Columbus Dispatch reported.
On the evening of May 31, he drove to get dinner and flowers and ended up in the middle of a protest in downtown Columbus, Ohio, WBNS-TV said.
What happened next?
“I was at the intersection, and I got the green light. I was trying to toot my horn, thinking, ‘Hey guys, look at the light,'” Hawkins told the station.
He was blocked — and video of the incident shows he tried backing up his car and hit a person on a bicycle with the rear bumper.
“He tried to get away from the situation and in doing so he accidentally struck — and I emphasize accidentally struck — an individual on a bike,” witness Phillip Hurst told WBNS.
Video shows the bicyclist, who didn’t fall to the ground, quickly began beating on Hawkins’ car — and a bunch of other left-wing George Floyd protesters followed suit and swarmed the vehicle. MORE
