Black Lives Matter supporter charged with ATTEMPTED MURDER for ramming car through crowd of Trump fans

A BLACK Lives Matter supporter has been charged with attempted murder after she allegedly plowed a car through a crowd of Donald Trump fans.

Tatiana Turner, 40, of Long Beach, was arrested and charged after video captured the horror incident in Yorba Linda, some 30 miles south east of Los Angeles.

The chaos unfolded as about 250 people gathered in two protests, one backing Trump and another called Caravan4Justice that supports Black Lives Matter.

Federal records show that Turner filed a trademark application for Caravan4Justice in July,.

While a GoFundMe page names her as the group’s “founder”, reports

Police also reportedly confirmed Turner is a member of Caravan4Justice.

Video captures the shocking moment the white Nissan Versa plowed through the crowd of Trump supporters who were said to be blocking traffic.

People carrying Thin Blue Line and American flags chased the car screaming before it was then swarmed by Orange County sheriff’s deputies.

Witnesses were heard screaming “they ran somebody over” and “oh my god” in the chaotic scenes.

A man and a woman were injured by the incident, one of which was taken away by ambulance, but their injuries are not said to be life threatening.

The injured woman broke both of her legs, reports ABC.

Pictures show Turner wearing goggles as she is detained near the scene after the incident at 3pm on Saturday.

The back and front windshields of the car were smashed during the incident, with a flagpole seen sticking out of the back.

Turner was charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon and was booked into Orange County Jail.

Dueling protests quickly became tense yesterday amid ongoing tensions nationwide ahead of the election in November.

Cops decided to step in and break up the groups as the demos dissolved into violence.

Sheriff’s deputies also received reports of people “having weapons” in the swelling crowd of around 250 people.

Officers took steps to declare the protest and counter-protest as an unlawful assembly and dispersed it.

In a statement, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said: “Approximately 30 minutes after the protests began, we began to receive reports of physical altercations occurring between the two protest groups, including at least one individual who was pepper-sprayed by another protestor.”

It came after two cars rammed into Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles as tensions continue to simmer nationwide.

One incident saw a pick-up truck knock down a woman, and another saw protesters chase down a white Toyota Prius forcing its way through the crowd

It follows a number of similar scenes where protesters have been struck by vehicles across the US.

Footage captured the moment a pick-up truck also struck Breonna Taylor protesters in New York on Wednesday.

The driver allegedly shouted at protesters “I don’t like y’all Black Lives Matter,” a witness told WKBW, and a local videographer said the vehicle had a “Blue Lives Matter” flag on it.

The same day, shocking video shared on social media captured the terrifying moment a driver allegedly plowed into protesters in Denver, Colorado.

Protesters are seen blocking the path of a vehicle which then revs up and rives through the crowd, knocking down at least one person.

President Donald Trump has made cracking down on violent protests a key part of his reelection campaign as he stands on a platform of law and order.
