Timothy Teagan of Plymouth, Michigan was sentenced to one year in prison for gun charges.
Teagan lied about her chronic marijuana use in order to obtain a gun. She also owned a firearm with ammunition and was a drug addict.
Teagan was never charged with any terrorist-related offenses despite being a member the “Boogaloo Boys” of extreme right.
A Detroit area man, arrested shortly before the 2022 elections and linked to an antigovernment group, was sentenced Monday to one year in prison for gun-related offenses.
Timothy Teagan attended several rallies while wearing a Hawaiian shirt. This clothing was worn by the Boogaloo Boys who were preparing for a U.S. Civil War.
Teagan, 23 years old, was not charged with terrorism. He pleaded guilty for concealing his chronic marijuana use when applying to buy a gun and for possessing a weapon and ammunition as a drug addict. Both crimes are federal.
Teagan was sentenced to one year in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Sean Cox. He will be credited for the time he spent in prison since his arrest in November.
Todd Shanker, the defense attorney, said in a court document that Teagan “never raised his rifle or engaged in violence” when he was with the Boogaloo Boys.
Shanker said that Teagan had participated in substance abuse education while in prison.
Teagan was arrested in Plymouth by the local police for allegedly assaulting his father. FBI agents searched the house and found body armor, gas masks, and boogaloo-flags.
They asked me if I was aware of any violent plans, or violent tendencies which could arise in relation to the elections. After the search, Ford Fischer asked Teagan if she had any plans of going to the polls armed.
