Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock’s arrest 18 years ago on charges of obstructing a police investigation have become a focus of Republican attacks in the pivotal Jan. 5 runoffs that could decide control of the U.S. Senate.

U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and other Republicans have highlighted the arrest on social media to promote Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in the twin runoffs, and Loeffler’s campaign joined in the barrage on Thursday.

The charges are part of a series of attacks leveled against Warnock since he emerged as Loeffler’s opponent in the 2021 runoff, along with other broadsides aimed at his past sermons and his political stances.

Media reports and court records show the charges against Warnock were dropped at the request of law enforcement and investigators said he was “very helpful” with the probe.

They blamed miscommunication and apologized for the arrest.
