CHICAGO – Attempted murder charges have been filed against the driver of a pickup truck who allegedly drove onto a median because he was angered by the group of “yuppies with dogs” having a picnic in Chicago's Logan Square Saturday.
Tim Nielsen, 57, of the 2400 block of North Campbell Avenue, was charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, Chicago police announced in an email Monday morning.
Police said Nielsen was arrested soon after the attack, “after he intentionally jumped a curb in his vehicle and drove at a group of pedestrians gathered for a picnic.”©2021 Chicago Tribune. Visit at chicagotribune.com. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
