Micki Witthoeft, the mother of Ashli Babbitt, was arrested for blocking traffic on Capitol grounds on Friday, the two-year anniversary of the death of her daughter after she stormed the building in a pro-Trump mob.

Witthoeft, 58, was arrested around 1:45 p.m. for failing to obey police orders and blocking and obstructing roadways, according to a statement from U.S. Capitol Police. The group did not have a permit to demonstrate, the statement said, and Witthoeft "asked to be arrested."

As is routine in these types of arrests, she was processed, given a citation to appear in court and released, the statement said.

The arrest came as other groups opposed to the events of Jan. 6 rallied outside the Capitol on the anniversary of the insurrection, decrying what they viewed as the unraveling of hard-earned civil rights.
