Today, Saturday, the US Department of Justice announced the arrest of Jacob Anthony Chansley, one of those intruders into the Capitol building, last Wednesday.
Pictures of Chansley were widely shared by Twitter users, who appeared during the storming of the Capitol building topless and wearing a leather hat topped with two horns.
The ministry stated that Shansley is accused of “knowingly entering or staying in a prohibited building or land without a legal permit, as well as violent intrusion and disorderly behavior in the Capitol building.”
Shansley is from Arizona and is one of those interested in conspiracy theories, according to US media.
The “Hill” website reported earlier in the day that the man who was seen carrying the platform of US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi was stopped during the storming of the Capitol.
