Man accused of driving into Pasadena protesters had amassed guns, set up ‘training camp’ at family vineyard, complaint alleges

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A San Marino man accused of driving a truck loaded with weapons into a crowd of protesters in Pasadena in May was turning his family’s vineyard into a “training camp” to prepare “to engage in civil disorder,” federal authorities allege.

Benjamin Jong Ren Hung, 28, is charged with conspiring to transport firearms across state lines and to make a false statement in acquisition of firearms. A judge on Monday decided to keep him detained without bail and Hung will not be released from federal custody.

The demonstrators scattered as the truck accelerated toward them, and no injuries were reported
