An upstate woman and two New York lawyers were indicted on federal explosives and arson charges for allegedly tossing Molotov cocktails at NYPD vehicles during recent protests in New York City.
Samantha Shader is accused of hurling the makeshift explosive at an NYPD vehicle occupied by four police officers. She also is accused of biting one of the officer's legs when she was taken into custody. Also, arrested were Brooklyn, New York lawyers Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis. They were accused of tossing their own Molotov cocktail at an unoccupied police vehicle in Brooklyn during a separate attack.
Both Rahman and Mattis were described as humble Brooklynites who worked their way to prestigious law schools and promising careers while Shader has an extensive rap sheet. No police were hurt by the explosives. Shader’s lit bottle never ignited. The explosive Rahman and Mattis tossed did ignite and set the empty, parked police vehicle ablaze.
