Prosecutors say he passed information on to then-Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio.
A DC police lieutenant was arrested on Friday and charged with obstruction of justice and false testimony for allegations that he leaked information to then-Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, who was arrested last month on inflammatory conspiracy charges over his role in the January 6 attack was condemned by the US Capitol.
The Justice Department announced Friday that a DC grand jury indicted 47-year-old Shane Lamond on one count of obstruction of justice and three counts of false testimony.
Lamond has been referenced repeatedly over the course of the nearly four-month inflammatory conspiracy trial for his links to Tarrio.
The indictment, released on Friday, alleges he obstructed the government investigation into Tarrio over his burning of a Black Lives Matter flag in December 2020 by telling the Proud Boys leader that law enforcement had a warrant out for his arrest .
Lamond is also said to have given Tarrio confidential law enforcement information, which she in turn shared with other Proud Boys members.
When questioned by law enforcement in June 2021, Lamond allegedly lied on numerous occasions about his contacts with Tarrio, the indictment says.
