PITTSBURGH, PA – KDKA in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is reporting that seemingly wanna-be Antifa thug Cameron Guetta left mommy’s basement long enough on May 30 to participate in starting a fire that consumed a Pittsburgh police cruiser during the George Floyd riots.
Also, if anyone knows a good barber … let Guetta know.
According to court paperwork, Guetta was seen kicking and punching a marked police vehicle outside the PPG Paints Arena.
Guetta is accused of punching the driver’s side of the car, knocking the rear-view mirror off, and repeatedly kicking the car.
Police officials said that the incident happened when a protest over the death of Floyd turned violent, as most did when wanna-be bad guys like Guetta showed up and decided to take their male inadequacy out on a marked police cruiser.
The Pittsburgh Police Mounted Unit began to ride in among the rioters in order to break up the mob, however they began to throw rocks and bottles at the mounted officers.
Guetta refused to leave the crowd, according to investigators and after the mounted unit was forced to retreat, Guetta led the charge at the forefront as rioters rushed to the police car and started to demolish it.
According to court paperwork, when officers showed up at Guetta’s home, he showed them a scar on his hand received from punching the inanimate police cruiser and was apparently quite amused, saying, “It did more damage to me”
Guetta is facing multiple charges including institutional vandalism, riot, failure to disperse and criminal mischief.
According to Pittsburgh officials, the “peaceful protests” that took place the Saturday after the Floyd death were “hijacked,” which caused them to turn violent.
According to Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich a small number of troublemakers are believed to have damaged more than 70 businesses, loot goods, and injured more than three dozen Pittsburgh police officers.

It seems that the “peaceful” protests linked to the passing of George Floyd keep getting reported as having been “hijacked” when they evolved into criminal acts of damage, vandalism and violence.
While we’re a month removed from the May 30th protest that happened in Pittsburgh (and numerous other cities), authorities are still trying to catch up with all the criminal activity that happened during the riots.
The suspect featured in the photos is alleged to have aided in helping destroy an unmarked police vehicle and assisting rioters in burglarizing local businesses during the protests that transpired in Pittsburgh on May 30th.
In the photos, the suspect can be seen wearing a distinct shirt blasted with the words “free at last”. Although, if police catch up with him, that may not be the case for the suspect.
Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich noted that the assessed damage from those riots saw 71 businesses vandalized and looted and resulted in over a dozen police officers being injured.
The Damage Assessment and Accountability Taskforce is currently tasked with trying to piece together all the evidence related to the riots that kicked off in May of this year, which hosts resources from both state and federal agencies reviewing the evidence from these riots.
Anyone with information on this suspect is asked to please call 412-323-7800 and specifically request the Damage Assessment and Accountability Taskforce. People can also submit tips via email at [email protected]
