CHP Completes Investigation into 2016 Capitol Incident

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Highway Patrol (CHP) announced it has completed its investigation into the violent incident involving more than 300 people on June 26, 2016 at the State Capitol. CHP has forwarded the results of the investigation to the Sacramento County District Attorney for potential prosecutions.

The incident began when a group of approximately two dozen people from "The Traditionalist Workers Party" obtained a permit to hold a rally in the west area of Capitol Park. Other groups present that day—and numbering in the hundreds—did not have a permit and were there to prevent the permitted rally. The non-permitted groups confronted the permitted group, leading to violence, which resulted in 14 reported injuries and thousands of dollars in property damage on Capitol grounds.

After an eight-month investigation, the CHP’s 2,000-page investigative report along with hours of video footage from many sources has been delivered to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of 514 misdemeanor and 68 felony charges involving 106 individuals. The charges range from unlawful assembly to assault with a deadly weapon.

"As a result of our investigation, which included conducting hundreds of interviews and reviewing many hours of video evidence, we are asking the Sacramento County District Attorney to bring charges ranging from unlawful assembly to assault with a deadly weapon," said CHP Captain Daniel Lamm, Commander of Capitol Protection Section. "Our role is to protect free speech, but not when that speech involves violence."

Investigators faced several challenges throughout the investigation. Many of those involved in the June 2016 incident had attempted to disguise their identities and did not cooperate with investigators.

For questions about potential criminal charges arising from this incident, please contact the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.
