“Teen ‘anarchist’ allegedly brought Molotov cocktails to Massachusetts protest”

Vincent Eovacious, 18, was arrested Wednesday on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and civil disorder in the demonstration late Monday in Worcester, according to the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts.
“The right to protest is not the right to hurt police officers and destroy property,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling said.
“According to the complaint, this self-proclaimed anarchist built Molotov cocktails — homemade firebombs — to use during a demonstration honoring George Floyd. We will aggressively prosecute anyone who pursues violence under cover of peaceful protest.”
Eovacious, of Worcester, was spotted in a trench coat on top of a building — despite a “no trespassing” sign — while yelling to a crowd below to kill the police as he paced on the roof, court documents allege.
An officer then allegedly saw Eovacious take out a bottle from a satchel that appeared to contain liquid and try to insert a rag into it while holding what investigators believe was a lighter, federal prosecutors claim.
Eovacious was arrested minutes later, and cops found three glass bottles with a liquid that smelled of gasoline, five white rags and two lighters inside his bag, court documents allege.
Eovacious then admitted to police the yellowish liquid inside the bottles was gasoline and that he was “with the anarchist group” while “waiting for an opportunity,” according to court documents.
The danger he posed was “very real,” FBI officials in Boston said.
“The apparent intent to hurl Molotov cocktails at police officers who are risking their lives to protect the Constitutional rights of protesters and the safety of us all is utterly reprehensible,” FBI Boston Special Agent in Charge Joseph Bonavolonta said in a statement.
If convicted, Eovacious faces up to 15 years in prison.
