The Alameda County District Attorney’s office has filed criminal felony charges against a liberal thug named Zachary Greenberg, 28, who allegedly attacked a conservative activist named Hayden Williams at the University of California, Berkeley campus on Feb. 19.
The charges include three felony counts and one misdemeanor count, according to the criminal complaint.
The felony counts relate to assault and causing or intending bodily injury, and criminal threats. A misdemeanor count is related to vandalism, the complaint shows.
The charges come five days after police arrested Greenberg for allegedly attacking Hayden Williams, who is 26, while he was manning a recruitment table on campus for the conservative group Turning Point USA, Fox News reports.
“We are pleased that the good investigative work of our police department has led to the filing of these charges,” Dan Mogoluf, assistant vice chancellor at UC-Berkeley, told Fox News. “The university believes that those who violate the free-speech rights of others must be held accountable and face the appropriate consequences.”

UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof said to TheDCNF that Greenberg was a “non-degree seeking student in 2010 during which time he was also employed in a neuroscience lab” and later “returned to a neuroscience lab as a volunteer from 2012-14.”
It is unclear why Greenberg was on campus.
“Unlike many universities, we have no walls or gates,” Mogulof said to TheDCNF. “We are open, as a matter of law, at all times to the public. On a daily basis, thousands of people not affiliated with the University transit our property to get from one place to another in the city…to attend events on campus…to eat at one of our many restaurants and cafes…to attend sporting events….to lounge in one of our open spaces.”
“He took a punch for all of us,” Trump said of Williams. “And we could never allow that to happen. And here is, in closing with Hayden, here’ the good news. He’s going to be a wealthy young man.”
Trump made the announcement at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where he also brought Williams up to the stage. Conservatives have accused many colleges of trying to suppress anti-liberal viewpoints.
Trump urged Williams to sue the man who assaulted him, but added, “he’s probably got nothing.” Williams told Trump that students would continue to defend him, as long as he defended them.
The president also announced that he would sign an executive order to protect campus free speech.
Let’s hope this unhinged and dangerous leftist thug is found guilty on all charges and thrown in prison for a long, long time!
