The viral McCloskey couple, famous for waving guns at protestors who trespassed on their St. Louis area home in 2020, have agreed to pay fines and forfeit their firearms in a plea agreement on Thursday.
Mark McCloskey will pay $750 and plead guilty to fourth-degree assault. His wife, Patricia, will pay $2000 and plead guilty to second-degree harassment. Neither will serve any jail time.
According to local outlet Fox 4 Kansas City, the pair were indicted and charged between them with felony charges of unlawful use of a weapons and tampering with evidence, as well as a misdemeanor harassment charge for Patricia McCloskey.
The pair came out armed with firearms to deter a mob of protestors who had already broken down the iron gate to their property and were trespassing at the time of the incident.
The McCloskeys have since gone viral, and earned the support of many Americans. They were invited to stream in over video and speak during the last Republican National Convention. Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R) has also said that he plans to issue them pardons.
Mike McCloskey is now also running for office for the US Senate as a Republican in his home state of MO.
