Picketing Medieval Times workers were nearly run over by a car during a protest in Buena Park, California on Thursday night.
The confrontation reportedly began when a woman slowly drove her vehicle towards the group. A passenger got out of the car and shoved the workers, some of whom were knocked down to the concrete.
“No one knew what was going on. It was pretty frightening,” a protestor told FOX 11 Los Angeles.
Video shows the car approaching the protestors while people are yelling. A woman who was recording the encounter was shoved into the bushes with her phone in hand.
