York, Pa – Violence erupted during a Black Lives Matter march through the streets of York, Pennsylvania, protesting the death of George Floyd.
The march turned into a full blown riot when a large crowd of violent people mobbed a white female who was driving her car on the street during the impromptu march.
Watch the scene unfold, filmed by Aimee Lewis:
According to WHTM:
The march began at Penn Park, moved to the police station, then became a parade down George Street, which still had cars occupying the road. The roads were not blocked off, which meant that vehicles had to yield way for protestors.
The march took a violent turn when a fight broke out between a protester and a driver. The driver got out of their vehicle, while several people swarmed around the car in a scuffle. The commotion eventually resulted in someone jumping on the vehicle and shattering the rear window.
Police were nowhere to be found during the ensuing chaos, while protestors were angered that some drivers continued on despite people occupying the roads.
Update: According to York Mayor Michael Helfrich, “It is clear so far from the footage that nobody was dragged out of the car.”
