Tanker Truck Driver Beaten By Rioters, Then Arrested After Driving Through Crowd of Minneapolis Highway Rioters

A truck driver who drove through a blockade of rioters on Minneapolis’ 35W bridge has been arrested Sunday, even though no one appears to have been seriously injured.

The man proceeded to the blockade where rioters were physically blocking the way, stopping when it became apparent he couldn’t proceed without colliding with them.

Rioters can be seen congregating around the man’s truck. Some throw projectiles at the cab, and as the crowd surrounding the truck cab grows larger, the driver slowly accelerates. It’s entirely plausible that he feared for his life as a crowd of riotous protestors that numbered in the thousands surrounded him.

Several rioters can be seen getting onto the cab and the storage tank attached to the truck, with one man appearing to block the driver’s field of vision and possibly striking the windshield of the cab.
