A man was arrested for allegedly hurling fireworks at people in the aftermath of the “MAGA Million March” in Washington DC, police said Sunday.
Javien Michael Dawson, 26, was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon for Saturday’s attack on the 1600 block of K Street, not far from the White House, cops said.
Video had shown counter-protesters throwing debris — and then fireworks — at a small group of Trump supporters sitting outside a P.J. Clarke’s restaurant in that area after the rally.
Police said that at around 5:40 p.m. on Saturday, Dawson “discharged a commercial grade firework at several victims at the listed location.”
He then fled, but was nabbed by responding officers.
Dawson was one of at least 21 people arrested during the unrest.
Six people were hit with weapons charges, including four for carrying guns without a permit or license, and two were charged with assaulting a police officer. Several others were charged with assault, theft, or disorderly conduct.
