Local politicians arrested as county backs immigrants

  • Published in Local

ROCKVILLE — U.S. Capitol Police arrested two local politicians last week in act of civil disobedience as the Montgomery County Council on Tuesday approved a resolution expressing support for the continuation of two federal immigration policies – Temporary Protected Status and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

"We don't often do this, but I think under the Trump administration we wind up doing it more than customary," said Council member Marc Elrich (D-At-large).

Last Wednesday, Council President Hans Riemer (D-at large) and Del. Ana Sol Gutierrez (D-18) participated in the act of civil disobedience outside the U.S. Capitol. Capitol police arrested Riemer and Gutierrez after a staged act of civil disobedience to raise awareness for DACA and TPS.

"These are civil disobedience actions that are planned very carefully," said Sol Gutierrez, who said she'd been arrested four or five times in civil disobedience protests.

Fillmore event leads to underage drinking busts

  • Published in Local

Montgomery County police arrested one person for second-degree assault and cited 21 for underage drinking outside a concert at the Fillmore Wednesday night in Silver Spring.

According to Rick Goodale, a public information officer for Montgomery County police, officers cited 10 juveniles and 11 adults for underage possession of alcohol as well as 20 other adults for possession of fake IDs outside a DJ White Panda concert.

Goodale said Montgomery County police sent plainclothes and uniformed officers to the Fillmore at the request of management for public safety and after a tip they received about the possibility of underage drinking.

“We monitor this stuff,” Goodale said.

The events mostly occurred in a nearby parking garage after police saw people with open containers of alcohol and were publicly urinating. In addition to a second-degree assault charge, the one adult arrested by police was also charged with resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer.

Goodale said two were taken to a nearby hospital for possible alcohol poisoning and that public urination charges were pending for the two sent to the hospital.

A representative from the Fillmore did not respond to a request to comment on the incident by the time of publication.
