Fox News shared that the man has been caught and identified:
D.C. police have arrested a Florida man who they say was near Senator Rand Paul last week following President Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.
D.C. police were escorting the Senator, who said he was attacked by a “crazed mob” following the President’s speech.
According to the Department of Justice, Brennen Sermon, 27, of Orland, was arraigned in D.C. Superior Court on one count of assault on a law-enforcement officer. He was released on his own recognizance.
Investigators say that, around 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 28, a D.C. officer was holding a police line at 14th and F Street, Northwest when Sermon kicked his bicycle and ran away.
When the officer chased him, Sermon allegedly punched him in the face.
The injury required stitches.
If Sermon is convicted, he could face up to 180 days in prison for each count. He could also face a fine of up to $1,000.
The New York Post shared more about the protestors, and how ignorant of the facts they are:
The Republican senator from Kentucky said he feared for his life when a mob of Black Lives Matter protesters surrounded him in the nation’s capital after President Trump’s convention speech.
The protesters could be heard shouting, “No justice, no peace” and “Say her name,” referring to Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical tech who was shot in March when cops burst into her Louisville apartment using a no-knock warrant during a narcotics probe.
The protesters were apparently ignorant of the fact that their target was the very lawmaker who was responsible for introducing the “Justice for Breonna Taylor Act” in June, prohibiting no-knock warrants like the one in her killing.
Rand Paul recounts being surrounded by protesters as he left the RNC:
Daliy Mail shared more infomation
Paul said the demonstrators - who had gathered around the White House in an attempt to drown out Trump's speech - were shouting threats to kill at him and wife Kelley as police tried to protect them.
Describing the moment, Paul told Fox News: 'They would have killed us had the police not been there.'
'The threats were to f— you up, to you know, to kill you. The threats were if they could get ahold of you, and I truly believe with every fiber of my being, had they gotten at us, they would have gotten us to the ground.
Sermon is currently only charged over the punching allegation, the DoJ said.
