According to police, the officers were attacked after they asked 30-year-old Clay Wendell to leave the basketball court amid a gathering of approximately 50 people at Randle Highlands Elementary School.

Despite a new peak for COVID-19 cases in the District over the weekend, Mayor Muriel Bowser says “we can still make it” to the planned phase 1 reopening on Friday.

They say Wendell struck one officer in the face and then tried to punch another before refusing handcuffs and running away.

After police caught up with Wendell, they charged him with assault on a police officer, unlawful entry, resisting arrest and being a fugitive from justice.

Police did not cite anyone for violating the District’s stay-at-home orders.
