Protesters gathered outside the home of Fort Jackson soldier Jonathan Pentland on April 14 demanding his arrest after footage emerged of him pushing and threatening a black man on a sidewalk in Columbia, South Carolina.
This footage, streamed live by Jessica Daynielle, shows protesters gathered outside the house. One person can be heard saying: “He’s in the window now. He just came out and yelled at us … he told us to get off his f***ing property.”
The Richland County Sheriff’s Department said on April 14 that protests outside the home had “turned violent” and that the family had been relocated.
According to local media, Pentland had been released after being arrested and charged with third-degree assault and battery. Credit: Jessica Daynielle via Storyful
