It is alleged that Kaine, 24, was one of five masked suspects who threw a smoke bomb inside the Minnesota Capitol rotunda Saturday afternoon.
According to the report, officers chased Kaine, but he resisted.

In the end, it took three cops, a “knee strike” and a chemical spray to subdue Kaine after he was identified as one of the counterprotesters who allegedly used fireworks or a smoke bomb to disrupt a rally in support of President Donald Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol, according to police spokesman Steve Linders.
While Kaine and four others were arrested on the suspicion of second-degree riot after the “March 4 Trump” rally in St. Paul, none of the five have been charged. Though Ramsey County attorney’s office said “there were insufficient facts to prove felony-level riot,” the case remains an “active investigation,” according to the Minnesota State Police.
Kaine attended Carleton College, which is a private liberal arts college located in Northfield, Minnesota.
