Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was ordered released on his own recognizance by a Washington, D.C. Superior Court judge Tuesday after he was arrested Monday on a charge of burning a Black Lives Matter banner stolen from a Black D.C. church last month. Tarrio was also charged with possessing two high capacity magazines. He pled not guilty to both charges. As a condition of his release, Tarrio was banned from D.C. until his June 8 court date after the judge cited his comments on social media that he wanted to burn more BLM banners. The judge said Tarrio could be arrested on sight if found in the city.
The burning of the BLM banner took place after a day of Pro-Trump rallies in D.C. on December 12. Tarrio and the Proud Boys were returning to D.C. this week for another round of pro-Trump rallies.
