Michigan man, extremist ‘Boogaloo Boy,’ pleads guilty to gun charges

Timothy Teagan of Plymouth, Michigan, a member of the anti-government "Boogaloo Boys" extremist group, pleaded guilty Wednesday to federal drug- and gun-related charges.

A Detroit-area man linked to an anti-government group and arrested just before the fall election pleaded guilty Wednesday to gun-related charges.

Timothy Teagan had attended various rallies with an AR-style rifle while dressed in a Hawaiian shirt, clothing favored by the Boogaloo Boys, a group bracing for a U.S. civil war.

Teagan, however, did not face terrorism charges. Rather, he pleaded guilty to concealing his chronic use of marijuana when applying for a gun purchase and possessing a firearm and ammunition while being a drug user, both federal crimes.
