A man drove into a protest against vaccination mandates Saturday afternoon in Palmdale, California, injuring at least one person, authorities said.
The man, William Aslaksen, 64, was arrested after he got into his car and ran into a crowd at a vaccination mandate rally, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. Aslaksen was alleged to have argued with protesters, gotten into his vehicle and rammed into the group on the sidewalk.
A woman, who was not identified, was injured but stable, authorities said.
Inmate records show that Aslaksen was in custody Sunday morning on $50,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.
