Maryland-National Capital Park Police say detectives have arrested and charged cyclist Anthony Brennan III with three counts of second-degree assault.
His arrest comes after a video went viral of Anthony assaulting a young girl for posting flyers in honor of George Floyd and assaulting a man with his bike who tried to intervene.

Police say Brennan forcibly grabbed the flyers from one of two female victims, then pushed his bicycle towards the male victim and caused him to fall to the ground before leaving the scene.
Cops also say they got hundreds of tips that lead to Brennan’s arrest, and they’re thanking the community for sharing information, and thanking the victims for coming forward.
Anthony has also been fired from his job.
