Man accused of murdering Thai grandfather in S.F. had run-in with police before fatal encounter, prosecutors say

Nobody gets arrested for a traffic infraction. This is a ridiculous angle on a tragic story.
Honestly, while I will always say fuck Antoine Watson, his gf (forgot her stupid ass name), and Chesa Boudin- this isn’t much of a story.
The attack (and subsequent death) was entirely unprovoked and random. Officers stopped Watson for being a shitty (even dangerous) driver, but I don’t think that has any correlation to what happened next. Watson literally just attacked a random old person.
Which makes it worse because he’s unhinged. Actually his entire family stays defending him, they’re all shit people.

Through hours of testimony and video clips, prosecutors gradually teased out the sequence of events that preceded the alleged assault. Early that morning, officers stopped, but didn’t detain, Watson after accusing him of running two stop signs in a silver BMW. He and a female passenger at some point then drove to and parked in the Anza Vista area of Western Addition, where, hours later, Watson allegedly pushed Vicha Ratanapakdee to the ground, causing fatal injuries.
