Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, 37, has been released from jail after serving a five-month sentence for burning a Black Lives Matter flag outside of a black church.  

Tarrio, who was also convicted of being in possession of an illegal rifle magazine, was snapped carrying a trash bag full of his possessions as well as a folder full of papers as he left the DC Central Detention Facility on Friday.

Despite previously claiming to have stood down as the far right group's leader, he sported a t-shirt saying 'Free the Proud Boys by any means necessary.'  

He greeted his mother and fiancée outside of the DC Central Detention Facility with a big smile under his mask and was met with a swarm of media attention. The mother and son shared warm hug as they celebrated his release and his mother took a load off his arms by taking the file folder from him. 

He also hugged his fiancée as he lovingly looked down at her as they spoke outside of the facility.

He spoke to the press before lugging his hefty bag of belongings to the car, where he then poked his head out the window and shot a peace sign to reporters. 

Tarrio has been in jail since September for stealing and burning a black church's BLM flag, and being caught in possession of high-capacity magazines in DC, even though they're banned by local laws.

He was convicted of burning a BLM flag belonging to a black Methodist church, and for bringing a rifle magazine that is banned in DC within city limits. 

Tarrio insisted he didn't know that the church whose flag he's targeted housed a black congregation, and insisted his behavior had only been intended as general protest against the anti-police brutality group.  

Just before Tarrio was set to turn himself into prison on September 6, he went to the Capitol. Tarrio was snapped smiling while brandishing the lighter in front of the seat of the US government in Washington DC on Monday night.

He was standing several hundred feet in front of the building, but used a technique called forced perspective to make it look as if he was trying to torch the building's famous white dome.

Tarrio and an unnamed pal were filmed singing a sea shanty called A Drop of Nelson's Blood as they walked up to the gates, and had a hug before Tarrio left his pal to begin his sentence.
