Man threatened Trump protesters, nearly ran over two officers, Boulder police say

Boulder police are seeking charges against Westminster man they allege nearly ran over two officers and threatened protesters at a “Nobody is Above the Law” protest in downtown Boulder on Thursday evening.

Online court records indicate that Graham Everett Olson, 23, faces first degree assault, obstruction, menacing, criminal mischief and reckless driving charges.

Organizers held “Nobody is Above the Law” demonstrations in cities across the United States on Thursday following President Donald Trump’s firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions the day before. Some people see the firing as a signal that Trump plans to interfere with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion by Trump’s campaign and Russia.

An arrest warrant affidavit indicates that a man called police at about 5:30 p.m. to say that Olson tore up the man’s protest sign and threatened him near the Boulder Public Library, 1001 Arapahoe Ave. Protesters convened at the Glen Huntington Bandshell.

A woman told officers that Olson threatened to stab her in the face, and a second woman said Olson told her that he had taken down her license plate number and planned on burning down her house, according to the affidavit.
