Eric Clanton, a former professor at Diablo Valley College, has been arrested by Berkeley Police for allegedly attacking pro-Trump activists with a bike lock during rallies that took place on April 15.
Clanton was accused by users on 4chan last month as being the masked Antifa activist who beat pro-Trump attendees with a bike lock at the April 15 rallies in Berkeley. Now police have arrested Clanton on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Clanton was a professor of philosophy at Diablo Valley College, which is located is Pleasant Hill, California, a short 30-minute trip away from UC Berkeley, though he is no longer listed among the school’s professors.
“His work in political philosophy also centers on mass incarceration and the prison system,” Clanton’s former faculty page read. “He is currently exploring restorative justice from an anti-authoritarian perspective.”
