A criminal complaint by Cincinnati police says Frazier jumped out his vehicle near a group of protesters and shouted, “You want some” before repeatedly punching the 61-year-old protester in the face. The complaint said Frazier caused “visible injuries” and broke the protester’s glasses.
Frazier was led away by authorities as protesters chanted, “Lock him up” – a reference to a chant Trump supporters used for his opponent Hillary Clinton in the last election.MORE NEWS: COVID-19 Deaths In West Virginia This Month Double That From August
