A Washington, D.C., judge ordered Enrique Tarrio to stay out of the city as Trump supporters prepare to rally this week.

Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio has been released following his Monday arrest, but a judge told him to stay out of Washington, D.C., as Trump supporters prepare to protest the election results on Wednesday.

Via Talking Points Memo:

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. Police noted the magazines were unloaded.

TPM also reported that members of the Proud Boys “have raged online about the arrest of their leader, complaining about perceived police leniency toward left-wing protesters and setting up a fundraiser for Tarrio that by Tuesday had passed $95,000.”
