Semi-pro basketball player, 'TikTok influencer' latest to be arrested for Third Precinct blaze


A federal criminal complaint states that police surveillance video captured this image of Bryce Michael Williams, armed with a Molotov cocktail, at the entrance of the Third Precinct before it was set afire.

In the days after protesters set the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct station ablaze, Bryce Michael Williams trekked across the country with a documentary film crew to join other protests over George Floyd's killing in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Denver.

Recounting the journey on an Instagram interview show this month, the 26-year-old self-described semiprofessional basketball player and "TikTok influencer" from Staples, Minn., explained that he was there when the Third Precinct caught fire.

"But at night, I participated in the riots at night of course, cause I'm with my people," Williams told the interviewer. They're "getting teargassed, of course I'm going to riot too."
