Molotov cocktail-tossing lawyers tried to pass out explosives to protesters: cops

The two attorneys busted for throwing a Molotov cocktail through a police car window during protests in Brooklyn Friday night were trying pass out the explosive devices to demonstrators in the crowd, federal authorities said Monday. Brooklyn community board member Colinford Mattis, 32, and his alleged accomplice, 31-year-old Urooj Rahman, were driving around in a tan minivan near a clash between police and demonstrators at the 88th Precinct station house in Fort Greene Saturday night, federal prosecutors for the Eastern District of New York said in a detention memo Monday.
