Wisconsin prosecutors are asking a judge to tighten restrictions on Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18-year-old facing multiple felony counts for fatally shooting two people and killing a third amid summer unrest in Kenosha, after he was seen at a Wisconsin bar last week.
Rittenhouse, who was released from jail on Nov. 2 after actor Ricky Schroder helped pay his $2 million bond, was spotted at a bar in southeastern Wisconsin with his mother and several other adults on Jan. 5, the day of his arraignment, when he pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Prosecutors in their complaint allege that Rittenhouse posed for a photo outside Pudgy’s Pub with two men who made “OK” signs with their hands, which has been adopted by white supremacists as a symbol.
The motion also says that Rittenhouse was serenaded by five men at the bar with “Proud of Your Boy,” the anthem of the Proud Boys, an alt-right group whose members were among those who stormed the U.S. Capitol last week.
The prosecutors are asking a judge to ban Rittenhouse from “publicly displaying symbols and gestures that are associated with violent white supremacist groups and from associating with known members of these groups, particularly the Proud Boys,” and to prevent him from drinking or going to bars while he is free.
According to Wisconsin law, anyone under the age of 21 can be sold or served alcohol if accompanied by a parent or legal
