Libertarian activist and 2020 presidential candidate Adam Kokesh was arrested in Texas moments ago, according to activist Ben Farmer. The arrest "took place somewhere in Decatur, TX and he is currently being transported to the Wise County Jail," said Farmer. "We already have an attorney and a bail bondsman, but he likely won't be arraigned until tomorrow since Texas is basically shut down today. The bondsman will call me once we can start making some moves."
It is unclear what he was arrested for, but livestreams posted on his Facebook show officers telling him that a dog was signaled to something in his RV.
