Larry Rendall Brock Jr, a retired Air Force colonel, was arrested Sunday afternoon in North Texas after being captured in photos during the invasion of the United States Capitol on January 6, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ).
Brock, 53, of Grapevine, Texas, faces one charge for entering a restricted building without legal authority and another charge for entering the Capitol in a violent and disorderly manner, the DOJ announced.
According to authorities, Brock was arrested on Sunday, January 10 in Texas, after turning himself in to the FBI at the Grapevine police station, an FBI spokesman said, quoted by The Dallas Morning News.
Brock recently confirmed to The New Yorker magazine that he was involved in the invasion of the Capitol.
Federal officials say Brock was allegedly part of the group that illegally entered the United States Capitol.
Brock was identified as wearing a green combat helmet and tactical vest with patches, a black jacket with camouflage and beige pants. Authorities also said that he was in possession of plastic handcuffs, which are generally used by law enforcement agencies to restrain or detain people.
Federal officials said this case will be prosecuted by the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia and the Counterterrorism Section of the DOJ’s Division of Homeland Security, with the assistance of the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas.
Protests in the United States Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, turned violent as Congress was ready to certify electoral college votes for the presidential elections.
Since then there have been several arrests in the country.
