Ashli Babbitt — the pro-Trump rioter shot dead while trying to breach the barricaded House chambers — had been accused, then found not guilty, of reckless endangerment, malicious destruction of property and tampering with a car in 2016.
The 14-year Air Force vet was prosecuted under her previous last name of McEntree, according to court documents from Calvert County, Md., where she lived at the time.
The Maryland public court records show police found probable cause for the string of charges, which are not described but were somehow connected to a “traffic case,” the records show.
Two restraining orders had also been issued at the time, but appear to be separate from the criminal case.
In February of 2017, another restraining order was issued against Babbitt according to court records. No reason is given in the court records for any of the restraining orders.
A petition for divorce was filed by Babbitt’s then husband, Timothy McEntree, in 2018, records also show. The divorce was finalized in 2019.
Phone calls to her lawyer on the 2016 criminal case were not immediately returned.
