WATCH: Ashli Babbitt’s Mother Arrested In Washington For Self Defense

Share this:

The mother of Ashli Babbitt, Micki Witthoeft, was arrested Tuesday evening after striking a counter-protester at an event outside of the Washington, D.C. jail where many of the Jan. 6 defendants are being held. (See Video Below)

Witthoeft, 58, was taken into custody just after 6:45 p.m. She was surrounded by officers and handcuffed before being put in the paddy wagon for a trip downtown.

“58-year-old Michelle Witthoeft, of Spring Valley, CA, was arrested and charged with Simple Assault and Destruction of Property,” Hugh Carew, a D.C. Metropolitan Police Department Public Information Office, said.

She was released hours later and made her way back to the protest.

“I did klonk my head getting in the paddy wagon,” she said.

“The MPD department on M St. has a serious rat problem.

“It really wasn’t that bad,” she said of the booking process.

According to Yahoo:

Tuesday’s arrest is not Witthoeft’s first brush with the law in recent years.

She was taken into custody for blocking traffic at a Jan. 6 remembrance event earlier this year, with police also citing the group’s lack of permits to hold the event on Capitol grounds.

Prosecutors later declined to file charges in the case.

Witthoeft’s daughter, a former senior airman with the U.S. Air Force, was killed by a Capitol police officer on Jan. 6 as she attempted to enter the Speaker’s lobby just outside the U.S. House of Representatives.

She only wants justice for Ashli who was murdered by a black cop that was backed up by dozens of other cops. Ashli a small female unarmed veteran was not a threat to anyone or anything. Compare to George Floyd, a career criminal who died in police custody while being arrested for committing his last crime. They built a memorial/monument for him and made his family millionaires. Ashli, a patriot and hero served her country, she deserves justice.
