"The protester arrested from Donald Trump's rally after screaming, "Trump's a racist", was convicted of leaving a bomb at a military facility on Park Avenue 10 years ago.

Peter Rondon, 29, of 93 Grand St., Apt. 214, was arrested after being thrown out of Trump's rally at the DCU Center Wednesday night. He was charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Police removed Rondon after he stood on his chair and started yelling "racist," according to a police report. Police said he was deliberately pushing and bumping people around him.

Rondon was forcefully removed from the event by police.

Court records show Rondon was arrested in 2005 after being found in a third floor bathroom of a recruiting facility on Park Avenue with four gallons of gasoline connected by several wires. A Marine recruiter told police Rondon, who had signed up to be a Marine but hadn't yet completed training, called him to the bathroom where he found him with the makeshift device, court records said.

Rondon was charged with possessing an infernal device and attempted arson and pleaded guilty in 2006. He was sentenced to serve 1 year in the House of Corrections and placed on probation for 5 years.

A Telegram and Gazette story about Rondon's arrest in 2005 was being shared on Facebook shortly after his removal from the Trump rally, leading to confusion among some on social media that the incident had happened recently. 

Rondon was arraigned in Central District Court Thursday, but according to the Telegram and Gazette rejected an offer from the prosecution to reduce the two charges to civil infractions with a $50 fine each. Rondon reportedly told the court he was unemployed and didn't have the money." Rondon image via turtleboysports
