PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Donovan Flippo, a known member of Proud Boys, pleaded guilty to assaulting a man in Northeast Portland.
The assault happened on July 8, 2018. The victim told police he was crossing south on Northeast 12th Avenue and Broadway when he noticed a truck stopped at a red light.
The people inside of the truck were shouting “politically-based comments,” the victim said.
Police said the victim yelled back and Flippo got out of the truck, argued with the victim and assaulted him — leaving him with a concussion and in need of stitches to his lip.
Flippo pleaded guilty to the assault on Friday. He was sentenced to 8 days in jail, 2 years probation and community service.
He won’t be allowed to join in any protests with more than 50 participants during his probation.
Western States Center released the following statement on Friday:
“Flippo is just one of a number of violent members of the Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer who must be held accountable for their actions. In fact, the other Proud Boys member who assaulted [the victim], Tusitala ‘Tiny’ Toese, has yet to be apprehended and put on trial. We call upon local prosecutors and law enforcement to push ahead in holding perpetrators of alt-right violence accountable. There can be no place in our society for random acts of brutality and intimidation by bigots and extremists.”
