ATLANTA, GEORGIA: Graham Evatt was one of the six left-wing protesters arrested after the riots broke out in Atlanta on Saturday, January 21, 2023. The six Antifa extremists were arrested after a peaceful protest turned into a 'night of rage' in an Atlanta forest after the death of Manuel Esteban Paez Teran. Teran, a climate activist, was killed after law enforcement opened fire on the 26-year-old protester after he shot a Georgia State Patrol trooper.

The six protesters were arrested for starting violent riots, shattering windows, setting a police vehicle on fire, and vandalizing walls with graffiti. Five of the six people arrested came from out of state to wreak havoc. According to police chief Darin Schierbaum, many protestors were armed with explosive devices which they used to carry out the violence. According to reports, activists were masked and dressed in all black and threw rocks and lit fireworks in front of a building that houses the Atlanta Police Foundation and damaged three businesses.

Schierbaum said, "It doesn't take a rocket scientist or an attorney to tell you that breaking windows or setting fires is not protesting, that is terrorism. They will be charged accordingly, and they will find that this police department and the partnership is equally committed to stopping that activity." He also said in a press conference, ”We can tell now, early in this investigation, this was not the focus tonight just to damage the windows of three buildings and set a police car on fire. The intent was to continue to do harm, and that did not happen.”
