The Mt. Pleasant Police Department reportedly received a call about Rittenhouse being at the bar, according to TMZ. The person calling the police department thought Rittenhouse might have been in violation of his bond agreement, the outlet reported.
The police department confirmed that Rittenhouse had been at Pudgy’s Pub with a parent on Tuesday and after an investigation by the district attorney’s office, it was concluded that he was not in violation of the bond agreement, TMZ reported.
Rittenhouse has been accused of murdering two protesters, Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, 22, during civil unrest ignited by the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. He is facing six charges from the shooting, including first degree intentional homicide and attempted intentional homicide, as previously reported.
Rittenhouse has pleaded not guilty to all charges, according to the Associated Press.
