Protester at Trump's Mount Rushmore event faces 5 charges


The Associated Press - July 7, 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. — One of the leaders of a protest before President Donald Trump’s pre-Independence Day appearance at Mount Rushmore was officially charged for allegedly stealing a shield from a law enforcement officer.

Thirty-eight-year-old Nick Tilsen, of Porcupine, South Dakota, is charged with second-degree robbery, simple assault and three other charges stemming from Friday’s demonstration that drew more than 100 protesters in 95-degree heat.

Tilsen is a a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe and the president of a local activist organization called NDN Collective.
