At least one lawyer at a legal conference attended by former President Donald Trump’s son and son-in-law was arrested after a driver’s-side crash in Charlottesville, Virginia, police said Friday.
The attorney, Marc Kasowitz, 38, was charged with reckless conduct and obstructing justice in connection with the Aug. 12 crash, according to a criminal complaint filed by the Charlottesville Police Department.
Kasowitz was arrested on Thursday at the conference where Trump was to speak, according a police news release.
Police say Kasowitz drove a truck through a barricade and struck a crowd of people at the intersection of Old Broad Street and Virginia Avenue.
Kasowitz and another man were also injured in the crash.
The crash was the third involving Kasowitz at the same conference venue, and the first time he was in custody.
The complaint said that Kasowitz had been working for Trump and his family since at least 2014, when he was hired by the real estate mogul to represent him in his litigation.
A spokeswoman for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Trump’s son- in-law, Jared Kushner, was also at the Charlottesville conference.
A former White House adviser, former White Bank chief executive and Kushner has also been accused of improperly obtaining financial information from the New York real estate developer.
