Talking Points Memo reports:
A Washington, D.C. judge ordered Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio to stay out of the city on Tuesday just ahead of a massive pro-Trump protest in which the right-wing street gang and other extremist groups are expected to swarm the nation’s capitol.
D.C. Superior Court Magistrate Judge Renee Raymond allowed Tarrio’s release Tuesday afternoon, but warned he could be arrested on-sight if he was spotted at the pro-Trump demonstrations.
The Proud Boys leader faces two felony counts of possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device for the magazines he was allegedly carrying in his personal bookbag.
UPDATE: Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio ordered to stay away from DC & released on personal recognizance this afternoon for felony possession of high-capacity magazine charges. In court docs, police say they found pictured AR-15-compatible magazines. Tarrio says he was selling. pic.twitter.com/nyFfrN1z0b
