BLM Protester Charged With Intimidating Kim Potter Trial Judge Denied Bail, Deemed Flight Risk

The Daily Caller

A Black Lives Matter protester accused of threatening the judge overseeing the trial over Daunte Right’s fatal shooting was ordered to be held without bail Monday after he was deemed a flight risk, according to reports.

Thirty-two year-old Cortez Rice appeared before the court virtually as his lawyers argued he deserved bail after he had been denied bond earlier in the month after he allegedly violated his probation for the third time, according to Fox News.

Rice allegedly live streamed himself inside a Minneapolis condominium on Nov. 6 where he thought Hennepin County Judge Regina Chu, who is overseeing the case, resided, according to the report. Chu barred cameras from the courtroom, with Rice reportedly making threatening statements toward Chu and demanding she reverse her decision.
