Ashli Babbitt’s Mother Arrested in Washington D.C

Micki Witthoeft, the mother of Ashli Babbitt, was arrested Tuesday evening after striking a counter-protester at an event in Washington, D.C.

The incident occurred outside the jail where many of the Jan. 6 defendants are being held.

Witthoeft, 58, was taken into custody just after 6:45 pm.

She was surrounded by officers and handcuffed before being taken into custody.

“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.
