Kyle Chapman — the self-proclaimed nationalist known as “Based Stickman” — will not be allowed to attend a far-right rally at Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Plaza on Sunday. The 42-year-old white supremacist was arraigned Friday for felony possession of a billy club and is being held on $135,000 bail after being arrested in Berkeley at a pro-Trump rally on March 4, 2017, that turned violent.
Even if Chapman does post bail, the judge ruled that he has to stay 300 yards away from Sunday’s "No to Marxism" rally in Berkeley. That rally was denied a permit request yesterday by the city of Berkeley.
Chapman was identified as one of the people causing the violence at the March rally in Berkeley, according to the probable cause declaration written by Berkeley police Officer Darrin Rafferty.
"He was swinging what appeared to be a wooden stick at many people," the officer wrote.
Rafferty wrote that Chapman also appeared to spray counterprotesters with pepper spray.
