McCormick created one of the most-talked-about scenes on a day when hundreds of protesters gathered near Salt Lake City Hall and the downtown library to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and against racism and police violence. He parked his car in front of the library — on a corner where many demonstrators had gathered — and exited the vehicle.

In a posted video, McCormick, responded to a stranger who asked him if he calls himself an American with: “Yes, I’m American. All lives matter.”

The charging documents say McCormick also brandished a knife at demonstrators. He then went to the back seat of his car, the documents say, retrieved a bow and aimed an arrow at those around him. The knife and archery set appear to be the basis for two of the charges against McCormick, accusing him of being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon.

The crowd responded by attacking McCormick and flipping his car. The vehicle was burned. Police pulled McCormick out of the melee.

Police arrested scores of people Saturday and Sunday in relation to the protests. McCormick wasn’t one of them, though Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown promised his department would investigate McCormick. Brown asked witnesses and anyone with video to come forward.

Although prosecutors decide whether to file charges, police in Utah can arrest and book into jail anyone based on probable cause that the suspect committed a crime. Some of Saturday’s demonstrators have complained that McCormick, who is white, should have been arrested immediately.

Midvale resident Sky Montiero, who describes herself as being of mixed race, said she saw McCormick draw the bow and arrow. Failing to take him directly to jail, she said, makes the demonstrators’ point about bias at the Salt Lake City Police Department.

“He knew for two blocks that he was driving into a protest or riot or whatever you want to call it,” Montiero said. "This guy had intent to kill.”

McCormick has been sentenced to prison seven times, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The first was in 1989, when he was convicted of first-degree burglary in San Bernardino County and was sentenced to six years. He was paroled in April 1992 but returned to prison twice later that year for parole violations.

Teen charged with driving into Memphis protest, hitting 4

  Teen charged with driving into Memphis protest, hitting 4 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — An 18-year-old motorist has been charged in Tennessee with recklessly driving into a group of demonstrators who were protesting police brutality, striking four, authorities said. During a street protest in the Midtown neighborhood of Memphis on Friday, Anthony Marcuzzo slowly drove his Chevrolet Tahoe into a line of protesters “and continued to move forward, pushing through the four demonstrators,” according to a police affidavit filed in Shelby County Criminal Court.

He accused a driver towing a trailer of cutting him off near 5400 South and 4015 West. McCormick, Gray said, pursued the driver to a stop light at 6200 South and 4000 West.

McCormick approached the driver’s door and pulled or nearly pulled the man out of his vehicle, Gray said. A fistfight ensued. Another driver called police. McCormick left before officers arrived, but witnesses reported McCormick’s description and license plate.

Gray said officers found McCormick at his home and questioned him.

“He didn’t deny anything," Gray said.

McCormick has not yet entered a plea in the Taylorsville case, according to a court docket. An arraignment is scheduled for July 13.

Prosecutors cite the former conviction for battery against someone in public safety, the Taylorsville case and the allegations from Saturday for why they want a judge to order McCormick’s arrest.

“Because the defendant is alleged to have committed two violent offenses against random strangers in public during a short time frame,” prosecutors wrote, “the state is requesting a higher bail to assure the safety and welfare of the community.”

McCormick, whose Facebook page says he is originally from Barstow, Calif., has shared his views before on the social media website, posting racist memes and talking about wanting to go back in time to “take out” former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when they were “in the crib.”

In a May 21 post, McCormick shared with his followers that "if you didn’t grow up during the cold war and or you and or your anaesters [ancestors] are here ileagely [illegally]. You shouldn’t be alloud [allowed] to vote!!!!” (Bracketed spellings have been corrected.)

Lonar Lake: A 50,000-year-old lake in India just turned pink and experts don't know exactly why .
What caused the lake to turn pink? That was the question on people's minds across India after Lonar Lake in the state of Maharashtra suddenly changed hues in recent days. Experts believe that the change is likely due to either increased salinity in the water, the presence of algae or a combination of both -- like parts of Utah's Great Salt Lake or Lake Hillier in Australia.Gajanan Kharat, a local geologist, said in a video posted to Maharashtra Tourism's Twitter feed, that this has happened before, but was not as prominent.
