DENVER (KDVR) — The Denver Police Department arrested Jafar Partowmah on April 26 at the Capitol for openly carrying a firearm in a holster, which is against the law in Denver.
Partowmah was arrested around 2 p.m. in the 1400 block of Lincoln Street.
A protest was held at the Capitol Sunday because of the COVID-19 closures.
Denver has an open-carry prohibition, which means you cannot openly carry a weapon anywhere in Denver, including at the Capitol.
A second arrest was made at the protest as well. A man who had an outstanding burglary warrant was taken into custody without incident.
