Rittenhouse Instigator Gets Devastating Details

(RoyalPatriot.com )- Jury selection in the trial of Kenosha rioter Joshua Ziminski hit a snag Monday morning and had to be postponed until March after Ziminski was accused of witness intimidation.

Ziminsky is charged with arson and a misdemeanor count of dangerous use of a weapon for his actions during the August 2020 riots that preceded Kyle Rittenhouse’s self-defense shooting.

According to Kenosha County Circuit Court records, defense attorney Terry Rose appeared before Judge Bruce Schroeder before jury selection was scheduled to begin to report that his client, Kenosha photographer Nathan DeBruin, had been intimidated by Ziminsky outside of the courthouse.

Rose, who represented DeBruin when he testified in Rittenhouse’s trial last November, told the judge that Ziminski had yelled at DeBruin as he was entering the courthouse and demanded that DeBruin show him a photograph he took of Ziminski during the riots.

After a discussion in the courtroom, Judge Schroeder increased Ziminsky’s bond from the $1,000 he previously posted to $14,000. By Monday afternoon, Ziminski was placed in police custody and jury selection was postponed for Monday, March 28.

Ziminski will have a pre-trial hearing on February 25. It is not certain whether new charges will be filed against Ziminski over what happened outside the courthouse on Monday.

Joshua Ziminski was initially arrested on the misdemeanor weapons charge after authorities identified him as the man who fired a “warning shot” on August 25, 2020, before Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed rioter Joseph Rosenbaum.

Police investigating the Rittenhouse shootings identified Ziminski from video footage where he was seen holding a black handgun. In multiple videos shot that night, Ziminski and his wife Kelly were observed in and around multiple people.

In one video filmed near the Ultimate Gas Station, Ziminski is seen pointing his weapon at the sky. A “muzzle flash” is seen at the same time the gunshot is heard. The Ziminskis were then filmed leaving the area.

Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted by a jury in November in the shooting death of both Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and for shooting Gaige Grosskreutz in the arm during riots that night in Kenosha.
