Blackwell can be heard on the now-viral video shouting out of his window, “F**k you n****r… F*****g n****r.” One of the frightened victims can be heard saying, “Call the police.”

In a statement regarding the arrest, the CHP said, “At one point during the video, it appeared the driver attempted to intentionally ram the victim’s vehicle before losing control and crashing into a wall on the right shoulder of the freeway.”

One person on social media said the crash was “instant karma” for his nasty attitude and counted his use of the N-word six times.

The police were also able to determine the incident happened on Tuesday, May 16 around 4 p.m., and identified Blackwell after further investigation.

They picked the man up in Newark, California, around noon on Friday, May 19, and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon, with hate crime enhancements. He was then booked into Alameda County’s Santa Rita Jail, KTVU reports.

Blackwell has been in trouble with the law before. He is a convicted sex offender with a criminal history of drug use and burglary, according to the California Megan’s Law database.

He was arrested in December 2000 for allegedly stalking a 19-year-old woman and making “obscene phone calls” to her house, according to reports. During a probe into this accusation, police searched his home and found videotapes of Blackwell committing child sexual abuse.

This discovery led to his 2001 conviction, where he was found guilty of performing lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14. He spent eight years in jail, according to

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office also confirmed Blackwell is a registered sex offender in California, according to KRON 4.

Blackwell is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.

    Why was this racist POS and known sex offender out in the streets?

  3. He's looking 4 free room&board in prison... says:

    It’s good that this despicable RSO pedophile will, hopefully, be going to jail for the rest of his life for hate crime. He should have never gotten out of jail for his 1st offense. Imagine, acting like that on the freeway in Oakland – or anywhere.
