CINCINNATI — A man who livestreamed himself drinking and dancing outside Friday night in Over-the-Rhine, huddling close together with over 20 other people and bragging that they did not care about the risk of catching COVID-19, was arrested Saturday afternoon by Cincinnati police.

Rashaan Davis, 25, stands charged with a second-degree misdemeanor for violating Ohio Department of Health director Amy Acton’s “stay at home order,” which commands Ohioans to keep a six-foot distance from one another and avoid leaving their homes for non-essential activities.
