Man in pickup drives into group of ICE protesters in Rhode Island

A man wearing a guard uniform in a pickup truck drove into a group of ICE demonstrators Wednesday night outside the Wyatt Detention Facility in Central Falls, Rhode Island.

The protesters, picketing outside the facility that has contracts with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, were organized by Never Again Action, a Jewish group formed in the past two months calling for the end of ICE detention, and Amor, a Rhode Island-based immigrant rights group.

The Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility said in a statement Thursday that Capt. Thomas Woodworth had been placed on administrative leave pending a state police investigation, NBC Boston reported. He is the man suspected of nearly running over the protesters, the station reported.
