Kyle Fitzsimons

In the archway headed into the Capitol, Fitzsimons allegedly charged the police line. However, he said he was protecting the doorway and “anyone sucked into the crowd was pushed into the police line and subjected to brutality.”

He was beaten by an officer who struck his head with a baton. The left side of his forehead began bleeding. Fitzsimons was attended to by a rescue squad and treated at a DC hospital.

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