Original story follows:


On Thursday afternoon, as the nation continues to wait for the verdict on the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, a man reportedly armed with a knife was arrested outside the courthouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Videos of the incident show police arresting a man dressed all in black across the street from the courthouse.

While the police searched the man, one officer hands a bag that was strapped to the man’s side over to another officer. The officer appears to hand over a knife that the man had on him.

His arrest comes less than 24 hours after two were arrested on Wednesday evening.

20-year-old Anthony Chacon was charged with a felony for bail jumping on a previous felony charge, as well as misdemeanors for disorderly conduct, obstructing/resisting an officer, battery, and bail jumping on a misdemeanor, according to documents from the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department.

The second protestor arrested on Wednesday was Shaquita Cornelious, who was charged with possession of marijuana, disorderly conduct, and obstructing/resisting an officer.
