Seven white men were arrested for allegedly making Nazi salutes and yelling racial slurs at a black family celebrating Independence Day at an Oregon beach, police said Sunday.
The seven, from Clark County, Washington, were part of a larger “highly intoxicated” group harassing the family on the Fourth of July in Lincoln City, police said.
Officers were first called to the beach in front of the Inn at Spanish Head Resort Hotel at around 9:30 p.m. for a report of people shooting off illegal fireworks and disturbing others.
The group of about 10 surrounded the cops and “began taunting and challenging the officers for seizing illegal fireworks,” police said.
Cops then learned that the bigots had also been harassing a family on the beach and officers formed a line in between them “allowing the black family to safely leave the beach and return to their room.”
Meanwhile, the degenerates allegedly challenged the cops to a fight and some started setting off fireworks in front of the officers.
Police arrested Ruslan Tkachenko, 22; Antoliy Kachankov, 28; Andrey Zaytsev, 28; Gennadiy Kachankov, 30; Yuriy Kachankov; 30; Oleg Saranchuk, 45 and a seventh man who refused to disclose his identity.
They were charged with riot, interfering with police, disorderly conduct, harassment, possession of illegal fireworks, and offensive littering. Kachankov was additionally charged with resisting arrest.
Six of the men were released by Sunday and issued citations due to local coronavirus restrictions on the county jail.
The seventh, who had refused to identify himself and had no ID on him, was booked into Lincoln County Jail for “fingerprint identification,” cops said.
