A Portland, Oregon judge on Tuesday found Rose City Antifa member John Colin Hacker not guilty of violently stealing the phone of journalist Andy Ngo.

Hacker waived his right to a jury trial at the Multnomah County Circuit Court. He was facing a third-degree felony robbery charge for allegedly pouring water on Ngo and snatching his phone at a 24 Hour Fitness Gym on May 7, 2019.  

Deputy District Attorney Maggie Burgess says Hacker’s actions were part of an ongoing harassment campaign targeting Ngo, who testified on the stand for more than an hour. She asked Ngo if he was nervous to be in the courtroom. Ngo responded, “Yes because I’m in the presence of Mr. Hacker,” who sat quietly next to his defense attorneys.

The shaky video is less than 30 seconds long, but prosecutors say it’s a key piece of evidence showing Hacker approaching Ngo, grabbing the device, and yelling, “I will break your f*cking phone.” 

When Hacker eventually took the stand, he admitted to pouring water on Ngo and briefly taking his phone because he was annoyed by some of Ngo’s news coverage, which he felt was unfair towards Antifa activists.
