Man who threw eggs at protesters wants hate charge tossed

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) — A Clallam Bay man accused of a felony hate crime against a Black woman who says he traumatized her at a Black Lives Matter protest in June wants the charge dismissed. The Peninsula Daily News reports Jeffrey Dunn contends the eggs he threw at protesters were not aimed at her. A probable cause statement written by Port Angeles Officer Swift Sanchez says Dunn admitted to an officer that he yelled racial slurs and threw eggs at the group. Dunn is charged additionally with four counts of gross misdemeanor assault for allegedly hitting four other women with eggs at the protest outside the Clallam County courthouse.
