Feds Arrest Man in Horned Helmet Who Entered the Capitol During Jan. 6 Protest

Federal police arrested the shirtless man in horns and fur whose photo inside the Capitol spread widely on the Internet, creating several new memes.
The conspicuous man has been identified as 32-year-old Jacob Anthony Chansley, also know as Jake Angeli, from Arizona.
He was arrested on Saturday, according to a Department of Justice statement, who described him as a spear wielder with an American flag.
“It is alleged that Chansley was identified as the man seen in media coverage who entered the Capitol building dressed in horns, a bearskin headdress, red, white, and blue face paint, shirtless, and tan pants. This individual carried a spear, approximately 6 feet in length, with an American flag tied just below the blade,” reads the statement.
He has been charged with “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.”
Two other men were charged and taken to custody today.
Florida man Adam Johnson, 36, has been arrested and incarcerated after entering the Capitol with Trump supporters on Jan. 6 and carrying the Speaker of the House’s lectern.
Johnson appears in a widely circulated photo carrying the Speaker’s podium, donning a “Trump” hat, and waving at the camera and smiling.
The photo was taken by Getty Images photographer Win McNamee.
He is a husband and father-of-five and had social media accounts that now have been taken down or deleted, which displayed posts where he said he was going to Washington ahead of the protests.
“It is alleged that on Jan. 6, 2021, Johnson illegally entered the United States Capitol and removed the Speaker of the House’s lectern from where it had been stored on the House side of the Capitol building. A search of open sources led law enforcement to Johnson, who is allegedly seen in a widely circulated photo inside the Capitol carrying the lectern,” wrote the Justice Department in a news release.
Another man indicted was 35-year-old Derrick Evans from West Virginia. He was taken into custody on Friday.
