Capitol police have arrested Micki Witthoeft, the mother of Ashli Babbitt, for allegedly "jaywalking" while protesting during the anniversary of her daughter's death. 

Ashli Babbitt, the January 6th protester and military veteran who was famously shot and killed by police while unarmed, was the only fatality of the event that did not involve natural causes.  

Witnesses noted that sidewalks near the Capitol Building were blocked as protesters sought to move closer, which forced them to shift onto the side of the street in order to navigate around. 

Police immediately ordered Witthoeft and others to cross to the opposite side of the road away from the building. 

When Witthoeft refused, she was arrested.
