Betancur, who lived in Silver Spring, Maryland, before the riots, was arrested on charges including engaging in unlawful activities on Capitol grounds, disorderly conduct and engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct in any restricted building or grounds.
At least 22 current or former members of the U.S. military or law enforcement have been identified as being at or near the Capitol riot, according to multiple news media reports.
Two Massachusetts residents including a Natick Town Meeting member were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday in connection with the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
The picture showed Schaffer in an Oath Keepers baseball cap that says: "Oath Keepers Lifetime Member".
Caldwell was involved in planning and coordinating the January 6 breach of the Capitol, federal officials allege. "Will probably call you tomorrow...mainly because..." Shortly after making that remark, Caldwell added, "We need to do this at the local level". "Lets [sic] storm the Capitol in Ohio".
At least 50 officers were injured during the course of events January 6.
Law enforcement officials' affidavit notes that Caldwell was reportedly responsible for organizing a group of 8 to 10 individuals, including some who have been identified as "styled OH militia members" who "wore helmets and military-style gear and were seen moving purposefully toward the top of the Capitol steps and leading the move against police lines".
Law Officer is the only major law enforcement publication and website owned and operated by law enforcement. I spoke to the hotel last night (actually 2 a.m. this morning) and they still had rooms. "That's when we knew things had gotten really bad".
Crowl wrote back a few hours later to wish Caldwell a happy new year.
"We are concerned that the arrests for the Jan 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol include some U.S. military reservists and veterans".
Radio communications through the Zello walkie-talkie app, intercepted by reporters and published in The Guardian, captured Watkins and other militia members communicating in real time as they enter the building.
In another Facebook message after the Capitol had been breached, Caldwell allegedly celebrated the attack and mused about bringing the fun home. We did this together.
In the interview with NBC News, Ryan acknowledged that she entered the building after photos surfaced showing her inside but said she only remained inside for two minutes and left because she felt uncomfortable.
Ryan said they headed to the nation's capital "in solidarity with President Trump", who "requested that we be in DC on the 6th". But there are also witnesses who saw his posts on social media.
