SEATTLE (AP) – Seattle police arrested a man on Capitol Hill after witnesses said he drove his SUV on the sidewalk to strike two pedestrians who confronted him after he yelled a racial slur at a street performer.
An altercation between the suspect and the street performer happened around 2 a.m. Saturday.
Seattle police say a man and woman confronted the suspect after he yelled a racial slur at the performer.
The suspect made threats and drove onto the sidewalk toward the pair who confronted him.
He then made a U-turn and tried to hit them again, but they were able to duck into a nearby store, avoiding serious injury.
