[Ed. – Yeah, “equality before the law.” We’ve seen Antifa set people on fire burning flags right this instant and the cops do nothing. I’ve never known much about the Proud Boys or bothered to find out, but if “burning a pilfered flag a month ago” is what the D.C. cops have on their leader – leave the guy alone. Can’t have it both ways, leftists.]
The leader of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, was arrested by D.C. police Monday afternoon on a warrant charging him with burning a Black Lives Matter banner taken from a historic Black church during a demonstration last month, officials said.
Police stopped a vehicle Tarrio had been in shortly after it entered the District, said Dustin Sternbeck, a D.C. police spokesman. He said it is believed that Tarrio, who lives in Miami, was coming into the District from the airport.
Sternbeck said Tarrio is charged with one misdemeanor count of destruction of property in connection with the Dec. 12 burning of a banner stolen from Asbury United Methodist Church.
