FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in California arrested a man accused of pepper-spraying a group of people rallying over the weekend in Fresno in support of Palestine.
The Fresno Bee reported 62-year-old Brian Lee Turner was taken into custody Sunday on suspicion of assault with a caustic chemical or flammable substance.
Fresno police say Turner is believed to be a man seen on video spraying something through a rolled-down car window toward protesters in another vehicle Saturday. It was not immediately known if Turner has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
No one answered Monday at a number listed for him.
