Video of the In-N-Out incident filmed by two teenagers has gone viral on social media. In the video, you can hear a man off-camera say “…are you filming yourself eating? You’re queer gay people.” The man also asks “Are you Japanese or Korean? Are you Kim Jong Un’s boyfriend?”
“A threat to one ethnic community is a threat to all communities. There is no place for hate crimes in Contra Costa County,” said Contra Costa District Attorney Diana Becton. “I commend the San Ramon Police Department for their response to this incident as well as the joint efforts of local and Colorado law enforcement.”
If convicted, Krah could face 18 months in county jail.
The district attorney’s office said Krah also faces charges in Denver for assault while driving a vehicle. Krah is currently in Colorado and authorities intend to extradite him to California.
Krah has posted bond and no arraignment information is available at this time.
