A Washington state man who has been arrested four times and quickly bailed out within a month at violent Portland Antifa riots, was arrested by federal authorities this week.

Following a Federal Bureau of Investigation investigation, 26-year-old Kristopher Michael Donnelly, of Kelso, Wash., was arrested and federally charged with felony civil disorder. The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon accuses him of assaulting a Portland Police officer. When Donnelly was arrested four times in August and booked into the local jail, he was either quickly bailed out or released by the county.

Donnelly was first arrested on Aug. 5, where he was filmed using a hammer to destroy a window of the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct. Donnelly was also spotted by police throwing objects capable of causing injury, refusing to disperse, and blocking traffic.

According to court records, when an officer attempted to arrest him, Donnelly used his elbow to forcefully strike the cop in the face. He continued to resist as several officers assisted in the arrest. Donnelly was eventually taken into custody for felony riot, felony criminal mischief, felony assault of a public safety officer, resisting arrest and other charges. He was held on a $5,000 bail, which was paid.

Three days later, on Aug. 8 Donnelly was arrested again by Portland Police during a declared riot outside the Penumbra Kelly Building, a police facility, for felony riot, interfering with a public safety officer, and second degree disorderly conduct. Donnelly attempted to flee before he was detained. He was ordered released without bail by a judge.

On Aug. 23, for the third time last month, Donnelly was arrested for felony riot, resisting arrest, and interfering with a peace officer. His bail was set at $5,000. Like before, he was quickly bailed out.

Then a week later on Aug. 30, he was arrested a fourth time for disorderly conduct, and interfering with a peace officer. Donnelly was transferred to federal authorities on Sept. 2 for his first appearance in federal court.

If convicted in federal court, Donnelly faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison.
