A Newport Beach realtor was arrested Thursday after allegedly making violent threats and brandishing a loaded gun at local protesters.

A video of a shirtless Travis Patrick White, 48, in a verbal altercation with two men Wednesday circulated on social media. A man who appears to be Travis can be seen holding a gun, pointed toward the sky as a group of protesters are walking just feet away from him. 

“He said black lives didn’t matter and to get the [expletive> out of the city, so I tried to fight him,” Shea Musiime told CBS LA. “And he then opened his backpack and pulled out a pretty big pistol and put it in my face, so I jumped behind the car.”

“At first the guy had the gun pointed at us,” Chris Marti said. “He basically pointed it at us, cocked it back and that was before I looked, and then by the time I turned around, he had the gun in the air. He wasn’t saying anything and he was scared, and that’s when he ran away.”

White was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats and assault with a deadly weapon, according to police.
