The suspect was charged with seven counts of attempted first-degree assault, seven counts of felony menacing, and one count of reckless driving. A second individual received a municipal citation for throwing missiles, also according to the Eaton police post.
Under cloudy skies and warm temperatures, more than 100 people gathered at Benjamin Eaton Memorial Park and Eaton Town Square Park, lining the sidewalks of Collins and Maple streets, waving flags and cheering their support law enforcement as traffic drove by.
According to rally attendees, about 3:30 p.m., the SUV drove west up Collins Street, barreled over the curb, cutting across the park grass on the south side. The vehicle drove down into a lower grassy area, almost hitting some rally participants before returning to the road.
Some participants at the rally said the suspect was the same individual who drove east on Collins Street before the incident while flipping off the crowd.
The rally in Eaton wasn’t the only one in Colorado to see disruption Saturday. In Aurora, a protest of several hundred people ended after a vehicle drove through a crowd on Interstate 225, according to a report from The Denver Post. Aurora police told The Post a protester fired a weapon, hitting another protester who was taken to a stable hospital.
Several previous rallies supporting law enforcement in Greeley and Evans took place in June and early July without any incidents.
A representative from the Northern Colorado Young Republicans was not available for comment late Saturday. In it’s Facebook post, the Eaton Police Department said it would have no additional comment while the investigation into the incident is open.
After collecting witness statements, rally participants in Eaton turned their attention back to their primary goal: to show support for law enforcement.
Bob Snidow drove from Carr, a town near the border of Wyoming, to attend the rally.
“I am here to show my support for the police from all over the United States, not just Eaton, not just Ault,” Snidow said. “I want them to know we care and what’s happening to them is wrong.”
As the crowd grew, two Eaton officers walked the perimeter of the park, chatting with rally participants and ensuring the event stayed peaceful.
Connie Williams, a 20-year Eaton resident, came out to wave her American flag with red, blue, and green lines representing fire and police departments and the military.
“We are here today because we believe our democracy is being threatened,” she explained. “And part of being in a small community is that your voice can be heard. The police, fire and military have always been there for us, so we feel we should be there for them.”
Before the rally, organizers hosted a food drive to benefit the Guadalupe Center. Bulldog Pub and Grub, 1815 65th Ave. in Greeley, also provided free lunch for the officers working at the station.
