This is the alleged face of weekend evil in the Inland Empire. If you faced off with this guy at a bar, you probably would have frozen in place and just surrendered right there.

But cops say one brave soul tried to stop a fight involving 29-year-old Jonathan Schmidt, pictured above, and was allegedly knifed for his good deed.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department ...

... Schmidt, of Lake Elsinore, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and battery.

The suspect not only knifed a victim trying to break up a fight, but he also attacked "several others at the establishment," deputies alleged in a statement released yesterday.

Cops were dispatched to a venue in the 31000 block of Riverside Drive in Lake Elsinore at 11:10 p.m. Sunday based on a report of assault with a deadly weapon, deputies said.

By the time they got there, Schmidt had allegedly fled in a dark green Ford Explorer, cops said. But other deputies on the street came across him. This is what happened next, according to the department:
Officers on patrol observed the vehicle at Grand and Bryant and initiated a traffic stop. Officers detained suspect Schmidt who was in possession of a knife.
The website LAist did some poking around and found that someone of the same name had been accused of "stomping on a man and fracturing his skull in Kearney, Nebraska last year." Nice.

And it appears that someone with Schmidt's name is affiliated with a white gang, which would be no surprise, given this suspect's appearance, right?.

Of course, we're often loathe to use the term white supremacist gang. White gangsters are no more proud of their race than Latino gang members (who often use the term "brown pride") or African Americans.

And now that the major white gangs are organized under the Mexican Mafia in prison, it would be way too ironic if an alleged supremacist finds himself kissing brown ass behind bars.
