Tulsa Protest May 31, 2020

TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) – Charges will not be filed against the driver of a pickup pulling a horse trailer that went through a crowd of protesters May 31 on Interstate 244, Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler announced Thursday.

To the contrary, Kunzweiler called on the Oklahoma Highway Patrol to identify the aggressive protesters from video of the incident, because he said, “The individuals responsible should be held accountable.”

The crowd of social justice protesters left their designated area and spilled on to the highway that day. What happened next was described by the district attorney in a memo released Thursday as a “a violent and unprovoked attack.”

The truck contained a man, his wife and their two school-aged children, and they told the OHP that they feared for their lives.

There were no horses in the trailer.
