Identity of Mysterious ‘Jump Kick Man’ in Rittenhouse Case Revealed, Has Lengthy Criminal History


Among the five charges faced by Kyle Rittenhouse, he was accused of “first-degree recklessly endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon.”

The jury found Rittenhouse not guilty of all five charges.

In this particular charge, it accused Rittenhouse of recklessly endangering the safety of an unknown male who referred to as “jump kick man” in court.

The prosecution needed to show Rittenhouse acted “under circumstances that show utter disregard for human life.”

At one point, the man jumped at Rittenhouse and tried to kick him and the teen opened fire.

“I thought if I were to be knocked out, he would have stomped my face in if I didn’t fire,” Rittenhouse said.

Rittenhouse fired at the man twice and missed.

The identity of the man is now known to be 39-year-old Maurice Freeland of Wisconsin, according to defense attorneys.

Freeland has a lengthy criminal history, including charges for battery, disorderly conduct, possession of marijuana and other offenses this year.

According to Fox News, Freeland even “approached the prosecution to testify in exchange for immunity for other charges, including a DUI.”

The prosecution rightfully rejected this offer.

The verdict is read shortly after the 10-minute mark in this video below. WATCH:

A video played at trial appears to show Freeland running at Rittenhouse and kicking him shortly after the teenager shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum…

Rittenhouse is facing one count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety with a dangerous weapon for firing the shots at Freeland. The crime carries a maximum sentence of 12 1/2 years in prison, plus up to five more years with the weapons modifier.

Jurors have been deliberating Rittenhouse’s fate on that charge and four others – first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and another count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety.

Before Rittenhouse fired the two shots at Freeland, a drone video appeared to show 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum chasing after Rittenhouse before the teenager turned around and fired four shots at him, fatally striking Rosenbaum.

A crowd then began to follow Rittenhouse up a nearby street.

As Freeland appeared to kick Rittenhouse, 26-year-old Anthony Huber swung his skateboard at the teenager. Rittenhouse then shot Huber once fatally in the chest.

Seconds after that, Rittenhouse shot 28-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz in the bicep. Grosskreutz testified at trial that he pointed his handgun at Rittenhouse before being shot, but said it was unintentional.
