WASHINGTON (ABC7) — A man who was arrested after protesters blocked U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ entrance into a D.C. public school last Friday faces multiple charges, including assault on a police officer.
According to D.C. Police, Bilal Ahmed Askaryar, 32, of Northwest Washington, “got violent and started pushing and shoving officers” when DeVos’ vehicle was attempting to exit a driveway behind the school.
The Washington Post reports Askaryar did not move when an officer requested him to, saying “no.” A police report says he allegedly was captured on a police body camera video pushing an officer and a sergeant.
Over the weekend, Askaryar pleaded not guilty to the assault charges, according to Politico. Other charges include misdemeanor assault and failing to obey an officer during the protest.
Last month, Askaryar wrote an article for NPR detailing he and his family’s escape from Afghanistan when he was five years old. He and his parents became U.S. citizens in 2000.
Askaryar has a hearing scheduled for March 17.
