Remember "Umbrella Man"? The rioter in Minneapolis? Identified!

"Umbrella Man", the window breaking rioter in Minneapolis, has been identified as a white supremacist trying to incite George Floyd rioting.

"This was the first fire that set off a string of fires and looting throughout the precinct and the rest of the city," Sgt. Erika Christensen wrote in a search warrant affidavit filed in court this week. "Until the actions of the person your affiant has been calling 'Umbrella Man,' the protests had been relatively peaceful. The actions of this person created an atmosphere of hostility and tension. Your affiant believes that this individual's sole aim was to incite violence."

Police identified "Umbrella Man" thanks to a tip that came via email last week, Christensen said.
