Florida Man Sentenced to 4 Months in Inauguration Day Rioting

Man was part of the group that broke windows and set fire to a limousine on Inauguration Day

A Florida man has been sentenced to four months in prison for Inauguration Day rioting in Washington, D.C.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Dane Powell of Tampa, Florida, was sentenced Friday in a D.C. court. In April, he pleaded guilty to felony rioting and assault on a police officer.

Powell was one of more than 230 people arrested after self-described anti-capitalists broke windows and set fire to a limousine in D.C. on Inauguration Day. That incident began around 10:30 a.m. near 12th and L streets NW.
