Benjamin Martin

Martin spoke with the media and stated people were pulled into the crowd and couldn’t move. He said “inciters” other than Trump supporters were there. He decided not to enter further into the building because he felt uncomfortable with these factors.

Martin and police allegedly got into a scuffle by the doors as police were trying to stop people from going in. “I was trying to negotiate with both sides to de-escalate the issue,” Martin said.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
