Illegal Demonstration on Capitol Grounds

January 20, 2022
Press Release

Just before 12:00 pm, demonstrators started blocking one side of the North Barricade outside the U.S. Capitol.

We issued them three warnings.

The demonstrators refused to move out of the driveway, so we started to make arrests.

We made a total of 27 arrests for Crowding, Obstructing or Incommoding (DC Code § 22–1307), and one for violating U.S. Capitol Police Traffic Regulation Section 16.3 (Crowd Control).
