Police are investigating vandalism at the home of a Fox News host as a possible hate crime. The AP reports that the incident took place at the home of Tucker Carlson in the Washington, D.C., area.
The report calls it “the latest example of protesters targeting the personal lives of Trump administration officials and allies” in the area.
Carlson called the incident “chilling” and “upsetting” in a phone interview with Fox News.
“Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department reported that officers were summoned to Carlson’s home Wednesday evening and found about 20 protesters and a commonly used anarchy symbol spray-painted on the driveway,” the AP reports. “A brief video posted on social media by a group calling itself ‘Smash Racism DC’ shows people standing outside a darkened home and chanting, ‘Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.’”
No arrests were made. The police report lists the incident as a “suspected hate crime” on the basis of “anti-political” bias.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: “We will work to hold those accountable for their unlawful actions. There is currently an open criminal investigation regarding this matter.”
