An Ohio State University student who volunteered for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign was arrested at a violent Black Lives Matter protest in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday night. Police say Hunter Martin was part of a mob that forced their way into the police headquarters using bolt cutters, and that he assaulted an officer on the face and chest with a wooden baton.
Riots have broken out in multiple American cities after the police-involved death of black violent criminal suspect, Daunte Wright. Unrest was compounded in Columbus with the death of Miles Jackson, an armed black criminal suspect who was shot by police and hospital security at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s Hospital. He had active felony warrants for domestic violence and illegal weapons.
Militant BLM activists gathered to force their way into the Columbus police headquarters on Tuesday night. 20-year-old Hunter Mattin, of Wauseon, Ohio, is a former Hillary Clinton campaigner and a student at Ohio State University. He is accused of using a wooden baton to strike Sgt J. Coleman in the chest and face. He's charged with aggravated burglary over his alleged involvement in the break in.
Mattin is scheduled for his first court appearance on Thursday. Police are considering other charges against him.
