Minneapolis Man Arrested for Harassing Judge Overseeing Trial of Former Police Officer Who Killed Daunte Wright

Protester charged with harassing judge in trial of police officer who killed Daunte Wright

Minneapolis man has been arrested after authorities say he harassed the judge overseeing former police officer Kim Potter’s trial.

Ms Potter has been charged with manslaughter over the death of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old man whom she fatally shot during a traffic stop last year in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Ms Potter has said she meant to fire her taser, but used her gun instead by accident.

Last month, a protester named Cortez Rice demanded that cameras and other recording devices be allowed at Ms Potter’s trial – but prosecutors say he took his protest a step too far.

According to a criminal complaint, Mr Rice led a demonstration outside what he believed was Judge Regina Chu’s apartment building. Then, authorities say, he went inside, live-streaming a video of himself just outside what he believed to be her apartment door.

“I think this is her crib right here,” Mr Rice said in the video, according to WCCO. “We got confirmation that this is her house right here. Waiting for the gang to get up here.”
