White Man Brandishes Rifle As He Accuses Black Bikers Of Being On ‘Private’ Road
A white Virginia man has been charged with multiple misdemeanors after brandishing a firearm at four black bikers for being on a “private” road, according to a Newsweek report.
- Dennis Lee Berry, 45, pointed the rifle at the bikers while they were riding through the neighborhood. The Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office issued a statement saying the bikers overlooked a “Private Road No Trespassing” sign.
- The four bikers repeatedly questioned Berry as to why their accidental trespassing warranted having the assault rifle pointed at them.
- Berry was charged with five misdemeanor counts because he aimed the rifle at unarmed men who were not trespassing on his private property.
- One of the victims can be heard saying in the video, “I used to live down the street. So why are you pointing a gun at us?”
One of the men identified himself as a federal officer and said Berry would “definitely go to jail” for shooting at him. Berry repeatedly accused the men of stopping at a “private drive.”
Berry was released on $5,000 bond, but his rifle was confiscated as evidence. The Class 1 misdemeanor could result in a $2,500 fine and up to a year in prison.
One of the bikers can sarcastically be heard saying “racism is not alive in the United States.” While Berry did use profanity to refer to the bikers,he did not explicitly use racial slurs.
