As part of a statement released this past Sunday evening, Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA) announced that her “non-binary” son had been arrested this past weekend for attacking police officials during a left-wing extremist riot.
The Boston Police Department explained that the incident took place at roughly 9:30 pm this past Saturday, January 21, 2021, while police officials were being forced to respond to a call about a “protest” at the Parkman Bandstand Monument.
“Upon arrival officers observed an individual defacing the monument with spray paint,” stated police. “The tagging read ‘NO COP CITY’ and ‘ACAB’. The suspect was later identified as Jared Dowell, 23, of Melrose.”
“During the arrest of Jared Dowell, a group of about 20 protesters began to surround officers while screaming profanities though megaphones on the public street causing traffic to come to a standstill,” explained Police. “While interfering with the arrest of Jared Dowell, an officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth.”
Police stated that the son, Jard Dowell, was taken into custody and issued charges of Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, Destruction or Injury of Personal Property and Damage of Property by Graffiti/Tagging.
Clark released a statement explaining that Jared Dowell, who she claimed is now her “daughter” Riley Dowell, was actually the person arrested.
“Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts,” explained Clark, who is the Democratic Whip of the U.S. House of Representatives, via social media. “I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting. This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.”
