The son of Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Katherine Clark, who identifies as a female, was arrested for attacking a police officer at a rowdy Boston Common protest in which a cop was bloodied in a punch to his face.
Jared Dowell, 23, who goes by “Riley,” is accused of defacing the landmark Parkman Bandstand Monument with spray paint on Saturday night, and was awaiting arraignment Sunday, the Boston Globe reported.

Clark, the House Democrat Whip, confirmed Sunday her “daughter” had been arrested.
“I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting,” she tweeted. “This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.”

In a police report, Dowell — a biological male — was identified by his birth name, Jared Dowell.
According to the report, officers were called to the monument on the eastern side of the Boston Common Saturday night and saw Dowell spray painting it with tags reading “NO COP CITY” and “ACAB,” a police slur.
During Dowell’s arrest, around 20 protesters surrounded the officers, yelling profanities through megaphones on the street that brought traffic to a halt, the police report stated.

“While interfering with the arrest of Jared Dowell, an officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth,” the report said.
Dowell was charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon, destruction or injury of personal property, and damage of property by graffiti/tagging, the police statement said.
