A racist Arizona man has been charged with a hate crime after yelling racist slurs at his former black neighbor in Utah before attacking the man and his 7-year-old son with a stun cane that hits with one million volts of power.
A Utah grand jury returned an indictment against Mark Draper, 58, for the assault that occurred in November of 2016 in Draper, Utah, reported Fox 13.
The indictment states Porter allegedly called his African-American neighbor a “n*gger” and then attacked him with a stun cane. The victim’s name has not been released.
“The defendant yelled ‘n*gger,’ said get out of here to [Victim] and [Victim’s] seven-year-old son, and used a stun cane (a Zap Cane) to assault [Victim], resulting in bodily injury,” the indictment says.
The report states the “Zap Cane” is a cane that contains a stun gun capable of delivering “one million volts” and is classified as a “dangerous weapon.”
Porter was arrested in Arizona where he now lives, and has been charged with one count of interference with housing, which is a hate crime.
The man faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.
