The jailed “commander” of the United Constitutionalist Patriots, Larry Mitchell Hopkins, received medical treatment after an altercation at the Doña Ana County Detention Center, according to his attorney.
“They got him in the ribs. They could have thrown him into a table or something,” said Kelly O’Connell, Hopkins’ attorney. O’Connell originally said his client was hospitalized with broken ribs. Later, he said he learned Hopkins received medical treatment at the jail.
Hopkins, 69, is being held without bail on charges of being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition.
