Man accused of driving into Pasadena protesters had amassed guns, set up ‘training camp’ at family vineyard, complaint alleges
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.
Hung allegedly drove his white Dodge Ram adorned with flags associated with far-right extremist groups at the crowd of about 150 protesters in Pasadena who had been chanting “Black lives matter here” on May 31, federal agents allege in a complaint filed in Los Angeles federal court.
The demonstrators scattered as the truck accelerated toward them, and no injuries were reported
