Newport Beach man charged for pulling gun on Black Lives Matter protesters

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- A Newport Beach man has been charged for pulling a gun on Black Lives Matter protesters.

It was caught on tape back in June.

Orange County prosecutors say Travis White waved a cocked, loaded weapon at the demonstrators while screaming racial slurs.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

He has been charged with two misdemeanors: brandishing a firearm in public and possession of a loaded firearm in public, and could face up to two years in jail if convicted.
