The child of Democratic Massachusetts U.S. Rep. Katherine Clark was arrested Saturday night after allegedly assaulting a police officer and defacing a public monument.
Jared “Riley” Dowell, 23, was detained by Boston police officers after they spotted them spray painting graffiti, including “ACAB” (All Cops Are Bastards), on Parkman Bandstand Monument in the Boston Common.
Dowell – who identifies as “non-binary – goes by Riley but was identified by Boston Police as Jared.
As police officers were attempting to detain Dowell, several of his fellow Antifa brothers surrounded the cops, with one striking a police officer.
“An officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth,” the Boston Police Department said in a press release.
Dowell was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.

Clark tweeted that having your child arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer as part “anti-fascist” riots was just part of the joy and pain of parenthood.
It is so incredibly sad to see how we have allowed our civilization to deteriorate by failure at establishing healthy standard and role-modeling. I do not blame the parents because the communities we have created are so sick all around us. Some powerful external forces had a lot to do with that too.
