Attorney L Lin Wood said Friday on Twitter that Kyle Rittenhouse "did not carry a gun across state lines" and warned those making the claim they may get sued for defamation.
Rittenhouse, who shot three assailants during a riot in Kenosha on Tuesday, was charged on Thursday with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, attempted first-degree intentional homicide and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18.
Lin Wood, who successfully sued multiple news outlets for defaming Covington Catholic's Nick Sandmann, worked for free to form Rittenhouse's defense team because he said the videos clearly show "justified acts of self-defense."
"When you start manufacturing facts to support false accusations, you get into trouble under the law of defamation," Wood told a Twitter user who claimed Rittenhouse's use of a gun was illegal. "Kyle did not carry a gun across state lines."
"The gun belonged to his friend, a Wisconsin resident," Wood said. "The gun never left the State of Wisconsin."
Rittenhouse may have been carrying the gun legally, according to a report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Under Wisconsin statutes that say anyone under 18 who "goes armed" with any deadly weapon is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor, Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was not old enough to legally carry the assault-style rifle he had.RELATED: Kyle Rittenhouse Worked As Lifeguard In Kenosha On Day Of Shooting, Cleaned Graffiti Off Local School After Work: Legal Team
