Police have identified the 64-year-old biker who sucker punched a seemingly peaceful Black Lives Matter protester in Ohio as Johnnie Bryon Devault, according to an affidavit posted to The Smoking Gun.
The protester, identified by the Clermont Sun as Nicholas Reardon, is seen on video surrounded by an unruly group of counterprotesters who reportedly arrived on motorcycles. The mob surrounds the man, chanting “USA” and berating him with obscenities.
While the victim calmly looks forward at the angry counterprotesters, the scrawny assailant punches him in the back of his head. A police officer standing in front of the man claimed not to have experienced the attack. He pointed for Reardon to leave the area, which Reardon did.
Cops in Bethel, Ohio, roughly 30 miles from Cincinnati, are on the hunt for Devault, thanks to video of the incident.
