This 35-page report is a chronological timeline of the police calls that came in and the business alarms that went off throughout the downtown area on the riotous night of May 28th this year in downtown Columbus. Twenty-seven windows of the Ohio Statehouse, the front door was compromised, and the building was rushed and ransacked by anarchists. The handful of highway patrolmen who were on duty that night were shaken by the experience. Columbus Police came to their aid, deploying tear gas and wood bullets (knee-knockers) at the anarchists. Fourteen arrests were made that night, but Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein dropped the charges.
