Utah Man Who Pointed Bow, Arrow At Protesters Pleads Guilty

A Utah man with a lengthy criminal history has pleaded guilty to pointing a bow and arrow at a group protesting against racial injustice in Salt Lake City in May. 

Brandon McCormick made the pleas Monday to charges of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person and aggravated assault. They are felonies that with a maximum prison sentence of five years. Officials say McCormick pointed the bow and arrow at the protesters after yelling “all lives matter” and said the N-word at the protesters. He did not injure anyone. A group swarmed McCormick and attacked him after he pointed the bow and arrow.
