Henry (Enrique) Tarrio was arrested two days before the planned demonstrations in the U.S. capital
Police released the leader of the far-right organization, Proud Boys, from custody, but he was ordered to leave Washington and not return until a court hearing.
Henry (Enrique) Tarrio was arrested Monday, two days before supporters of President Donald Trump planned to demonstrate in the U.S. capital in the wake of Trump’s defeat in the November presidential election, which Joe Biden won.
D.C. Police Department said Tarrio was arrested on charges of destruction of property in connection with the burning of a “Black Lives Matter” banner during protests in Washington in December.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Renee Raymond released Tarrio on personal recognizance but ordered him to remain outside the U.S. capital until his next hearing in June.
