A drunken racist from Green Bay, Wisconsin is facing several charges, including a hate crime, after chasing a black man while yelling slurs, then firing a handgun at the victim.
Taylor W. Hill, 24, was charged Monday with recklessly endangering safety using a dangerous weapon as a hate crime and faces up to 22 years in prison if convicted, reported Green Bay Press-Gazette.
The victim, who was not physically injured in the attack, said he was walking around at 11 p.m. Friday when a “drunk and belligerent” man, later identified as Hill, began yelling at him.
Hill then pulled out a handgun, and the victim began to run away. Hill then chased the victim to his car while yelling a racial slur, saying, “You think you can come here and do whatever you want.”
Hill then fired at least one shot at the victim.
Hill was then arrested at gunpoint by officers.
The victim told police that he had never interacted with Hill prior to the altercation and had done nothing to rile him up.
In addition to the hate crime charge, Hill is also facing charges of possession of a firearm while intoxicated, threatening police officers and bail jumping.
He is currently being held in Brown County Jail on a $1,000 cash bond and also for violating conditions of his bond in a 2016 drunken driving case.
