No charges will be filed against the man who drove through a crowd on Interstate 244, the Tulsa County district attorney announced Friday.

The incident happened on May 31 during a protest.

Officials said the demonstrators were given a protected route, but some left the designated route and went onto I-244.

According to a document from the district attorney, it stated that "the operator of the family truck and horse trailer and its occupants (which included two school age children) were the victims of a violent and unprovoked attack by multiple individuals who unnecessarily escalated an already dangerous circumstance by obstructing an interstate highway."

District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler also said the family was in fear for their lives.
