Roommates, Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with homicide in the Kenosha, Wisconsin killings, seems to be flaunting the fact he’s no longer in jail…as evidenced by his T-shirt. Currently out of jail and awaiting trial, teenage shooter Kyle Rittenhouse sent a clear message with his choice of clothing.
Kyle Rittenhouse, who just turned 18, visited a local bar in Mt. Pleasant, Wisconsin earlier this week with his parents, enjoyed a beer—and showed up wearing a T-shirt with the phrase, “Free as F**k.”
If you’re wondering how he was allowed to drink alcohol since he’s underage, well that’s because of Wisconsin law. A minor is actually allowed to drink if a person under 21 is with a parent, guardian or spouse of legal drinking age—and Rittenhouse was accompanied at the bar by both of his parents.
After an anonymous call came in about Kyle Rittenhouse being at the bar, the Mount Pleasant Police Department responded. Apparently the caller was concerned that him being in the bar was a violation of his bond agreement.
The police say they looked into it and learned Rittenhouse was at Pudgy’s Pub on the afternoon of January 5th with a parent, and relayed the info to the Kenosha County DA’s Office. The following investigation determined he had not violated his agreement.

As we previously reported Rittenhouse was released from jail in November on $2 million bail. He is charged with killing two protesters and wounding a third during the civil unrest in Kenosha following the shooting of Jacob Blake. He was 17 at the time, and was captured on video shooting two of the three alleged victims and then walking toward police, who did not even detain him.
