So Wait, Fetterman Pulled A Gun On A Black Jogger?!

At a glance

  • A new 30-second television ad released by a political committee supporting Republican Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz blasts his Democrat opponent, John Fetterman, over a 2013 incident when he pulled a gun on a Black jogger he mistakenly suspected of a crime.
  • The ad, titled “Chase,” was released by American Leadership Action and says Fetterman, then mayor of Braddock, “chased down an innocent, unarmed Black man.” The ad then jumps to an interview with the jogger, Cristopher Miyares, where he describes Fetterman pulling a gun and aiming it at his chest.
  • “I mean, there’s a mayor with a shotgun and six other cops surrounding me. What else could I do but this?” the jogger says in the ad as he puts his hands up in surrender.
