Proud Boy Chairman Enrique Tarrio’s Defense Fund Reaches $100K Goal

Just a day after his arrest, the legal defense fund for Proud Boy Chairman Enrique Tarrio has reached its goal of $100,000. 

Tarrio was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of destruction of property just after arriving in Washington, D.C. Speaking to Ford Fischer of News2Share following his release, he compared his arrest to that of Roger Stone, stating that he was arrested at gun point, with multiple police cars being involved in the arrest, which shut down the bridge he was traveling into D.C. on.

Shortly after Tarrio’s arrest, his family set up a fundraising page on the Christian fundraising site GiveSendGo. Just twenty-four hours later, the fund has reached its goal of $100,000.

Tarrio’s charge comes following him admitting to taking down and burning a Black Lives Matter sign in the District during the recent pro-Trump December 12th demonstrations.

Notably, nobody with Black Lives Matter was arrested following the burning of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. during the George Floyd riots in June.

Tarrio was additionally charged with possessing two high-capacity magazines, which is illegal in Washington, D.C., where the Second Amendment does not seem to apply in. Many on the right are speculating that the magazines were planted on Tarrio.

Due to Tarrio admitting to burning the banner on social media website Parler, the judge ordered him to stay out of Washington, D.C. until his next hearing on June 8th.
