People’s Convoy Too Distracted by In-Fighting to Sneak Into D.C.
The People’s Convoy vowed to do more than just endlessly circle Washington D.C.’s Beltway in urine-soaked jeans when they returned to their base camp at Hagerstown Speedway in Maryland on Wednesday. But instead of somehow sneaking two dozen or so semi trucks into one of the most heavily monitored cities on Earth, members devolved into fist fights, animal abuse and accusations.
Update: Saturday, May 21, 2022 7:35 a.m. EST - People’s Convoy supporters were not thrilled with last night’s declaration of success from their leaders. Members accosted the luxury RV leaders were hiding out in and demanded Maryland police arrest leaders for fraud, according to the Daily Beast:
At around 8 p.m. Maryland State Troopers arrived at the Hagerstown Speedway to convoy-goers yelling “squatters’ rights!” After speaking with Coleman, Summers, and other co-organizers in the RV, a state trooper told angry convoy supporters that there was no financial contract with the speedway and that they would have to leave the property within hours. “We would like to press charges,” convoy-goers yelled back, seeking to begin a legal endeavor against convoy leaders—including Coleman and Summers—over alleged “fraud.” “Arrest them for fucking fraud,” another supporter yelled out.
