Anthony Brennan III, 60, from Kensington, Maryland, was arrested Friday and charged with three second-degree assault charges, according to the Maryland-National National Park Police.

In a statement issued through his lawyer, Brennan apologized, saying he admitted “his outrageous behavior” was “unacceptable and wrong.”

“I am sick with remorse for the pain and fear I caused to victims on the line and online,” he said, adding that he was cooperating with the authorities. “I am committed to correcting mistakes by handling, through counseling, the fundamental problems that cause my repulsive behavior.”

Brennan said he was “dedicated” to working to bring peace to society and justice for “all victims of racial and police brutality.”

The incident occurred on Monday when a man and two women walked on the Capital Crescent Trail in Montgomery County posting leaflets in support of the Black Lives Matter. According to police, the suspect began arguing with them about the leaflets and forcibly took several leaflets from one of the victims.

He then pushed his bicycle towards the male victim which caused him to fall to the ground, according to police. Male victim recorded the whole incident.

After that incident the Maryland-National Capital Park Police asked the community to help find suspects and community members sent hundreds of tips over the past few days. The police used various sources to strengthen the information before identifying Brennan.

The park police contacted Brennan and his legal counsel on Friday and they agreed that Brennan’s home be ransacked while members of the Montgomery State Prosecutors’ Office and Park Police were present. The police said they found and confiscated evidence at home.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
