A man has been charged with multiple felonies after he was accused of driving his SUV into a large group of people while they were holding a rally in support of Blue Lives Matter.
On the afternoon of July 25 in Eaton, Ohio, many people came together on the grass in a local park to advocate for Blue Lives Matter.
As the protestors held their signs and showed their support, a maroon SUV allegedly left the street and drove through the park, reportedly heading directly at the pedestrians in a purported attempt to run them over.
Just after 3:30 pm, Eaton Police Department was made aware of the incident when they received a call, and officers went to the scene to investigate the report.
When the police arrived, they reportedly learned that the people taking part in the rally believed the man in the SUV was either attempting to run them over or force them out of the way as he allegedly drove through the center of their event.
It was reported that a co-defendant was also involved in the incident, and the person was allegedly throwing what was purported to be “missiles” into the crowd.
Cordova was found by the police and taken into custody, and he is facing charges for suspicion of seven counts of attempted first-degree assault, seven counts of felony menacing, and one count of reckless driving.
He was released from custody on a bond on July 27.
While the authorities have not disclosed the second person’s connection to Cordova, they reported that he was cited for allegations that he threw the missiles at the group of people.
No one was reported as being injured during the alleged incident.
