Man Arrested After Car Plows Into Immigration Protesters At Brea Office Of Rep. Ed Royce

October 26, 2017: Fifty-six-year-old Daniel Wenzek of Brea, the driver, was detained on suspicion of assault. He was booked and released pending further investigation. Organizers say several hundred people were protesting outside Representative Ed Royce’s office, many of them coming following a morning press conference with labor leaders and elected officials in Los Angeles’ MacArthur Park.

Protesters were trying to deliver letters to Royce about what eliminating temporary protected immigration status would mean to them. After being turned away from Royce’s office at about noon, they began marching in a circle around Brea Boulevard near the Congressman’s office and the intersection of Birch Street.

Wenzek drove his car into the crowd around 12:30 p.m., when police were in the process of shutting down the demonstration due to traffic congestion caused by protestors. Wenzek’s car drove through the group of protesters at a very low speed. No one was seriously injured, but six people were transported to area hospitals for evaluation.
