Matthew Council

Council allegedly pushed against a police barrier to open an emergency door that he and others in the crowd went through. He yelled at police and was pepper sprayed after pushing an officer.

Council apologized while in custody after he was read his Miranda rights. He said he did not intend to harm the officer.

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