Two Capitol Rioters Go On The Lam Ahead Of Trial

Law & Crime reports:

Two Florida residents accused of assaulting multiple police officers during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol have apparently gone missing just as their trial was set to start. Olivia Michele Pollock and Joseph Daniel Hutchinson III are facing an array of charges for allegedly participating in what federal investigators described as “at least four bouts of assaultive conduct against U.S. Capitol Police.”

Olivia Pollock, who was seen wearing a ballistic-style vest and carrying a flagpole with an American flag attached to it, is alleged to have punched an officer who was stumbling. “The court was notified that they had tampered with or removed the ankle monitors that track their location,” Public Affairs Officer Andrea Aprea told Law&Crome in an email. Pollock’s lawyer told Law&Crime that she doesn’t know where her client is.
