A couple of pro-Trump supporters were waiting outside the building where the January 6th Committee was holding another primetime hearing. They were there to harass and heckle anyone who they believed supported the work being done by the committee. One of the first people they saw was Michael Fanone, a Washington D.C. police officer who was dragged by rioters, stunned with his own taser, and threatened at gunpoint with his own weapon on the day in question, and the group asked if he was a “real officer?” as they followed him up and down the sidewalk.
In the video, Fanone does not engage with the hecklers and tries to avoid them as he makes his way around them. He eventually doubles back and as the group continues to cajole him, another anti-Trump man with a large banner on a pole steps in to knock one of them down in a hilarious moment.
Everyone is stunned and can’t believe what just happened. Eventually, a small skirmish between the two parties began, but police are quick to break it up.
According to the Hill, police did arrest the man with the banner.
Fanone was able to escape away from the hecklers while they were distracted.
