A man has reportedly been arrested after a viral video showed him and a woman getting into a heated argument with a group of teens that were participating in the annual “Wheels Up, Guns Down” event in Miami.
According to Miami 7 News, a member of the Dream Defenders activist group recorded the video footage Monday afternoon.
In the video, the woman can be seen arguing with the group of teens as she explains that her foot was run over by one of their bicycle tires. However, things escalated when a man ran up to the group of teens with a gun. The man cursed at the group and was also heard calling the group “stupid n***ers” as he scared them off.
Miami police confirmed to 7 News that the man seen in the video was arrested. According to Dream Defenders, the man was reportedly identified as Mark Allen Bartlett. He was reportedly charged for having a concealed firearm.
The incident occurred during South Florida’s annual “Wheels Up, Guns Down” MLK rideout.
