The Press-Enterprise reported a 56-year-old man was arrested on the afternoon of Oct. 26 for driving into a crowd of protesters in a recent online article. Brea resident Daniel Wenzek was arrested at an intersection near Rep. Ed Royce’s office on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon. The man’s motive for driving through the crowd was being investigated and luckily no serious injuries were reported. According to the article, the protest started with 150 to 200 supporters of Temporary Protected Status demonstrating near Royce’s downtown office at around 1 p.m. The whole demonstration lasted about 20 minutes and remained peaceful until the car came and rammed through the protest. Police reported that the protest was nearly over and the protestors were moving from the streets as Wenzek slowly began driving through the crowds. Police arrested him immediately but was released later in the afternoon pending further investigation.

Demonstrations often bring high energy and people are on edge; large crowds can always bring unpredictability. When an average driver encounters a large group of people they can either get nervous or angered by the commotion around them if they are not accustomed to driving in crowds. Due to the large number of pedestrian traffic, it can also be very difficult to see people within a driver’s blind spots, especially if that driver is not used to having pedestrians in those areas. It may also be very difficult to navigate and effectively operate their vehicle in a large crowd. During a protest, uncertainty, and unfamiliar driving surroundings, pedestrians can be injured and drivers can be a cause of this if they are caught in the middle.

            The driver may be charged with criminal charges but the California DMV can also take action from the accident to suspend or revoke license for being negligent operator. As the DMV is a separate entity from California criminal court, they have the rights to go after a driver’s license when a situation like the one in this article occurs. If a driver is caught in this situation, it is important for them to do their research in order to find a team of DMV Defense Experts that can expertly represent them at the DMV's Administrative Hearing.
