Back in April 2017, we featured a story on an Antifa activist using a bike lock to assault a Team Trump supporter. Eric Clanton, the 28-year-old suspect believed to be the attacker, was recently arrested for assault—$200,000 for bail while locked up at Berkeley City Jail. However, Clanton’s detainment hasn’t been officially confirmed to be the result of some highly resourceful digital detectives who availed some pretty solid evidence depicting Clanton as suspect number one in the bike-lock incident.
The East Bay Times wrote, “[Clanton] was arrested on suspicion of use of a firearm during a felony with an enhancement clause and assault with a non-firearm deadly weapon.”

4chan Cracked It
With the digital evidence of Clanton being the Antifa bike-lock-wielding guy, the 4chan (/pol/) cyber ninjas “unmasked” the former professor upon processing footage, many photographs and various publicly circulating resources.

Props go out to /pol/ and any/all assistants who put in what highly appears to be Sherlock-grade detective work!
