Three Black Lives Matter militants were charged after a viral video showed them harassing elderly diners outside a Pittsburgh restaurant over Labor Day weekend.

What are the details?

Monique Craft, 35, Kenneth McDowell, 33, and Shawn Green, 24 — who also goes by Lorenzo Rulli — were charged by summons with multiple misdemeanors Monday in connection with the Sept. 5 incident outside the Sienna Mercato restaurant, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Craft is charged with theft, conspiracy, and simple trespass; McDowell is charged with possessing instruments of crime, conspiracy, harassment, and two counts of disorderly conduct; and Green faces charges of disorderly conduct, conspiracy, criminal mischief, and simple trespass, the paper said.

According to a criminal complaint, McDowell used a megaphone to scream obscenities at diners sitting outside the restaurant, WPXI-TV reported.

The complaint added that Green swore at diners, specifically an elderly couple, and gave them the middle finger, the station said. Video shows Green telling the couple, “F*** the white people that built the system set against mine — you old dick!” He then issues a theatrical laugh at them as others join in.

The complaint also said Green walked up to the front of the restaurant and screamed into an open window, WPXI reported.

Police said Craft approached a table and drank a diner’s beverage, the Post-Gazette said. Video shows it’s the same table occupied by the elderly couple Green was harassing, and they simply watch Craft drink the beer, after which she sets the glass back on the table.

Another protester swipes a glass off a table, causing it to shatter on the ground, the paper said.

In a separate video at the scene, it appears McDowell shoves his megaphone into the head of a man holding a bicycle in the street:

But Craft told the Post-Gazette there’s much more to what happened that day.
