Vanderweide, who has been dubbed "helmet guy," closely resembles a man captured on video hitting two people in the face with a helmet during the violence at Gage Park on June 15.

That day, alt-right demonstrators stood alongside extremist preachers who waved anti-LGBTQ+ signs at Pride celebrants.

A formation of pink-masked people, later referred to by some as "Pride defenders," positioned a big fabric screen in front of the preachers to block the bigoted rhetoric from celebrants' view.
