Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide as well as some other charges when Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber were shot dead and a third man was injured. 

The teen’s legal team say he acted in self-defense. 

Prosecutors also wrote that Rittenhouse “demonstrated his carefree attitude by going to a bar immediately after his arraignment on Jan. 5, 2021, and drinking 3 beers in the company of known ‘Proud Boys’ while flashing white supremacist signs and wearing a ‘Free as F**k shirt.”

They asked that his bond be modified so he cannot associate himself with known militia members as potential witnesses could be intimated and that he be prohibited from possessing or consuming alcohol and being present in bars and taverns.

Videos from the rally last year showed that Rosenbarum appeared to throw a plastic bag at Rittenhouse but missed and approached the teen before he was shot. A witness said that Rosenbaum was trying to grab Rittenhouse’s gun which was described as a Smith & Wesson AR-15 style .223-caliber rifle.

In a clip a man who appears to be Rittenhouse was heard saying “I just killed somebody,” into a cell phone as he ran away. Videos also showed him being followed and he fired at another person who jumped on him when he fell but was not hit. Huber approached and tried to pull the rifle away from Rittenhouse before he was shot, and a third person who appeared to be carrying a handgun was shot in the arm, NBC News reported. 

If convicted, Rittenhouse could spend up to life in prison.
