MORE: NO CHARGES FOR DRIVER WHO HIT PROTESTER WITH CAR

A Grand Jury deliberated and decided not to file charges against the driver on Aug. 5. They said they did not find enough evidence to charge the man with a crime. During the proceedings, the state called 13 civilian witnesses, including Wagoner and five police officers, and the state presented medical records, photographs, 911 calls, Facebook Live video and more, the Lane County district attorney said.

About 50 people had gathered at the park by about 7 p.m. 

Wagoner spoke to those in attendance before the group started their march on Adams St. in Eugene.
