Trucker Who Drove Into Floyd Protest Could Have Charges Dropped
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A truck driver who drove through a large crowd of protesters on a Minneapolis highway last year during demonstrations following the death of George Floyd will have criminal charges dropped if he remains law-abiding for the next year.
Bogdan Vechirko was charged with a felony count of making threats of violence and with criminal vehicular operation, a gross misdemeanor.
Vechirko told investigators he didn't mean to drive into the protest or hurt anyone as he was returning from a fuel delivery in Minneapolis.
Nobody was seriously hurt during the incident.
