Vasquez was charged with gross misdemeanor third-degree rioting, which carries a maximum possible sentence of one year in prison and/or a $3,000 fine. He received a summons to appear in court. If convicted, he will be sentenced based on his criminal history.

His first court appearance is set for Tuesday morning. Because Vasquez was not booked into jail, he does not have a mugshot available.
