Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse has reportedly been spotted wearing flashing white power signs and wearing a ‘pretty as f ** k’ t-shirt in a Wisconsin bar while out on bail.
The 18-year-old, who is awaiting trial for killing two Black Lives Matter protesters and injuring a third, was tricked into Pudgy’s Pub in Mount Pleasant with his mother last week, making the ‘OK’ sign was often used by white supremacist groups.
Prosecutors are now trying to change the terms of his bond agreement to keep him from repeating the behavior.

Prosecutors in Kenosha County want to stop Rittenhouse from drinking alcohol, entering pubs, making white power signs and meeting well-known white supremacist groups, according to WTMJ.
They claimed he had three beers at Pudgy’s. It is legal in Wisconsin for underage people to drink with parental consent.
Patrons serenaded him with the Proud Boys anthem Proud of Your Boy, which was originally written for the Disney movie Aladdin.
According to prosecutors’ motion, Rittenhouse stayed with the Proud Boys the entire time he sat in the bar.

The teen is currently out on a $ 2 million bond pending trial.
He was with armed militia members in August when he shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, wounding Gaige Grosskreutz.
Kyle Rittenhouse is charged with the murder of two people during street protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He pleaded not guilty
He was arrested the next day at his home in Illinois.
His lawyers said the teenager was acting in self-defense when confronted by Black Lives Matter protesters demonstrating about the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
The protests lamented the shooting by police of black Jacob Blake, who was shot seven times in the back and left paralyzed on August 23.
Last week, Rittenhouse pleaded not guilty to the charges during a brief hearing via teleconference.
Rittenhouse has argued that he opened fire in self-defense, claiming he was protecting local businesses from the raucous protests.
He is facing seven charges: first degree willful manslaughter in the death of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36; first-degree reckless murder of Anthony Huber, 26, attempted first-degree deliberate murder of Gaige Grosskreutz, 22, two counts of reckless safety threat for shots at others, being a minor in possession of a firearm and violation of a curfew.

During Tuesday’s hearing when Loren Keating, Commissioner of the Circuit Court in Kenosha County, asked Rittenhouse if he understood that the bail and bail conditions previously imposed “remain in full force,” he replied, “Yes, sir.”
The lawsuit will begin on March 29.
Conservatives have rallied around Rittenhouse, describing him as a patriot who took up arms to protect people and property, raising enough money to earn his $ 2 million bail, which allowed him to leave prison on November 2.
Others see him as a domestic terrorist whose presence aroused protesters with a gun. Rittenhouse was 17 at the time of the shooting.
Casualties: In the August 25 shooting, Rittenhouse fatally shot Anthony Huber (left) and shot and wounded Gaig Grosskruetz (right). Anthony Huber’s family is suing the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin for $ 10 million. Gaige Grosskruetz has similarly filed a lawsuit seeking $ 10 million in damages
Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, was also shot and killed by Rittenhouse. Rosenbaum’s family has not yet filed charges against the city of Kenosha
Victim Anthony Huber’s family is suing the city of Kenosha for $ 10 million. Demonstrator Gaige Grosskruetz, who was injured, has similarly filed a lawsuit seeking $ 10 million in damages.
The Blake shooting took place three months after George Floyd died while being restrained by police officers in Minneapolis, sparking outrage and national protests demanded by police.
In Kenosha, a city of 100,000 near the Wisconsin-Illinois border, protests resulted in an estimated $ 50 million in damage.
Some people answered a social media call to travel to Kenosha in the aftermath of the Blake shooting. That included Rittenhouse traveling from his home in Antioch, Illinois to neighboring Wisconsin in an effort to “protect” local businesses from destruction.
Rittenhouse says he acted in self-defense when the protests turned into violence, but he will face trial for murder later this year. He is depicted shooting in Grosskreutz
