A Cedar Rapids man was charged Tuesday with assaulting protesters as he drove his vehicle “aggressively” toward the group who were on foot crossing the street near the federal courthouse on June 24.
The protesters had been protesting the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade striking down federal abortion protections.
David Alan Huston, 53, was charged with assault by use or display of a dangerous weapon — vehicle, an aggravated misdemeanor; and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. If convicted, he faces up to two years in jail.
Huston will be prosecuted by the Black Hawk County Attorney’s Office following an investigation by the Cedar Rapids Police Department.
Black Hawk County Attorney Brian Williams said last month he was reviewing the case because at least one member of the Linn County Attorney’s Office was present during the incident and could be a witness.
Iowa Republicans jumped to former President Donald Trump’s defense after the FBI’s search for documents as part of an investigation into whether he took classified records from the White House led to his Florida estate.
Some quickly denounced the Monday search by the FBI of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, where agents executed a search warrant for classified documents, the Associated Press reported.
“The Department of Justice must immediately explain their justification for this unprecedented raid,” Marion Republican U.S. Rep. Ashley Hinson tweeted Tuesday.
The Miami Herald reported agents obtained a search warrant from a federal magistrate judge in West Palm Beach to get dozens of boxes allegedly containing classified material that Trump had taken to his home when he left the White House.
A source close to the investigation told the Herald the FBI was able to show probable cause because Trump and his lawyers had already turned over classified documents sought by the National Archives and Records Administration that he was not supposed to have taken, and investigators suspected the former president may have more.

The Big Ten's next round of media rights contracts will not include a deal with ESPN.
Two people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the Big Ten was looking for a seven-year deal worth $380 million per year from ESPN, and the network declined.
ESPN has held television rights for the Big Ten since the mid-1980s. The network has shared Big Ten rights with Fox in the latest contract.
ESPN and ABCs exit from Big Ten broadcasting opens the door for NBC and CBS to negotiate their way as new broadcast partners.
