Seattle Protesters Were Going to Vandalize Park Sculpture — Then, This Man Showed Up

"I'm just trying to protect this park."

A Seattle man defiantly stood in front of a park sculpture Friday night so that demonstrators could not vandalize it.

According to Seattle Times reporter Evan Bush, protesters were going to spray paint the structure when Scott Sullivan decided to take a stand.

"I'm just trying to protect this park," he said.

As a result, Sullivan was spray painted by the unruly crowd. Video captured by Bush showed the chaotic scene.

At least three officers were injured, two seriously, Friday night when May Day demonstrations in Seattle turned violent. Seattle's mayor said protesters were seen throwing bricks, overturning dumpsters and wielding weapons. Police ruled the demonstration to be a riot.
