Prosecutors filed hate-crime charges against a Seattle man accused of beating a convenience store clerk while yelling anti-Muslim and anti-Arab slurs.
The attack happened on July 3 in Fremont.
Court documents said that Edward Hugh Campbell was dressed in green camouflage and called the clerk a "bin Laden sympathizer" who did not respect his military uniform.
Prosecutors said Campbell smashed a beer can against the clerk's face, causing severe cuts around the victim's left eye.
Campbell is not an active member of any armed service. [Link]
