AT least two people were arrested after violent confrontations broke out outside the Kenosha courthouse where a jury was on the second day of deliberations on the fate of Kyle Rittenhouse.
Black Lives Matter protesters and Rittenhouse’s supporters were seen clashing outside the courthouse as the jury failed to come to a verdict on Wednesday.
A 20-year-old man wearing a “F**k Kyle” T-shirt was arrested after throwing a protest sign at Rittenhouse supporter Emily Cahill.
Another 34-year-old man was arrested for disorderly conduct, according to DailyMail.com.
The jury for Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial called to see drone footage of the Kenosha shooting last summer as deliberations continued on Wednesday.
Jurors asked four questions as the judge hit back at coverage of the trial.
In a motion filed on Monday, the teen’s defense team says the prosecution kept high-definition drone video footage of the night of the shooting during the Black Lives Matter protests.
Rittenhouse’s lawyers claim assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger only shared a lower-quality version with the defense and didn’t use the HD version until the evidence portion of the trial had concluded.
Binger played the high-definition footage for the jury during his closing statement, claiming it showed Rittenhouse “pointing his gun” at the crowd.
The defense made the claims in a motion that asks Judge Schroeder for a mistrial with prejudice.
