Judge allows Proud Boy who rioted at the Capitol to be released over medical concerns and threat of retaliation

This Wednesday, a judge released from custody a Florida Proud Boy who participated in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, saying he wouldn't get adequate medical care while incarcerated, WUSA9 reports.

"U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth called top D.C. Department of Corrections officials into court for the second time in a month to hear his ruling on a bond motion for Christopher Worrell. Lamberth held the warden of the D.C. Jail and the director of the DC DOC in contempt of court last month for ignoring his order to turn over notes from an orthopedic specialist who examined Worrell. The Justice Department says Worrell may have misled the court in framing a cosmetic surgery on his pinky as an emergency," WUSA's report stated.

Worrell was arrested in March and was charged with multiple crimes connected to the Capitol riot. He and other Proud Boys allegedly assaulted federal officers with pepper spray.

After an unannounced inspection at the D.C. Jail where Worrell was housed, Marshals announced they would move approximately 400 detainees to a federal facility in Pennsylvania, but Judge Lamberth said he didn't have confidence that Worrell's medical needs to be taken care of.

Lamberth also said he was worried guards would "retaliate" against Worrell, whose case helped prompt the inspection. According to WUSA9, Worrell was moved to a detention facility in Alexandria while he works out a third-party custodian to supervise his pretrial release.
