WASHINGTON,DC – A Colorado man is facing numerous charges after he was arrested during the protest in Washington, DC for allegedly illegally carrying a gun, knife, ammunition, and a large-capacity magazine. 48-year old Harlan Boen was arrested in the 1300 block of Pennsylvania Ave. NW on suspicion of carrying a pistol without a license, possession of a prohibited weapon, and other charges. It is illegal to open carry in the city and gun owners must hold a permit to conceal carry.
According to the Denver Post, Boen does not have prior criminal history in Colorado beyond minor misdemeanor arrests in the early 1990s.
