The man who survived being shot by Kyle Rittenhouse filed a secret petition to change his legal name after his past as a violent career criminal was exposed. …
Grosskreutz, of West Allis, said he has received death threats in the two years since he was shot in the arm during the protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The August 2020 protests famously left Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum dead at the hands of Rittenhouse. But last year, Rittenhouse was cleared of murdering the men after jurors decided he’d acted in self-defense.
Grosskreutz added he was seeking the name change to protect him and his family, although his proposed new moniker was not revealed.
He is a violent convicted felon who admitted lying during the Rittenhouse trial, and who has now moaned about ‘right wing media’ outlets who exposed his planned subterfuge.
‘But the real story here isn’t that I am seeking to change my name, but that a process that is supposed to protect and shield those in danger was undermined and sealed information was released to the right wing media within hours of my filing,’ he said in a statement.
Grosskreutz garnered controversy across the nation when his key testimony against Rittenhouse was scrutinized as it was revealed he lied to police about being armed during his standoff in Kenosha.
