Another WGA striker struck by car — deliberate?

There have been several incidents of vehicles hitting WGA picketers as studio lot traffic comes and goes. The most recent occurred at about 10 a. m. today at the Raleigh Studios gate when, according to eyewitness A.L. Katz, Adrian Wenner was knocked down by a car and was nearly run over.

Katz, a strike captain, said the driver’s actions appeared deliberate in that he was trying to use his vehicle to move Wenner out of his path. He added that the WGA had been notified and had indicated that the guild plans to file an  LAPD report. Wenner went to his doctor.

“It was kind of horrifying to watch,” Katz said. “He was shaken up pretty badly. We haven’t seen a lot of
animosity — 80% of people are pretty empathetic — and we try to make
sure that people’s emotions don’t overcome their common sense.”

The WGA had no immediate comment.
