Ashli Babbitt’s Mother Arrested by Police on Capitol Riot Anniversary

Micki Witthoeft, the mother of Ashli Babbitt, was arrested while walking with her supporters on the street on the U.S. Capitol grounds when Capitol Police officers approached the group, directed them to move to the sidewalk and warned that if they did not, they would be arrested, according to a live stream of the incident.

“We’re not discussing it. Sidewalk now or you’re under arrest. It’s that simple. We’re not discussing it. We’re not having any discussions. The sidewalk or you’ll be placed under arrest” an officer said, according to another video posted of the interaction by News2Share’s Ford Fischer, a documentarian who films political activism. Micki Witthoeft then turned her back to police and placed her hand behind her back, the video shows. “Go ahead,” the officer said, as officers took Witthoeft by the arms toward a police vehicle.

“Ashli Babbitt! Ashli Babbitt!” Witthoeft and supporters shouted as officers led her into a police vehicle.
