NBC News reports:
The FBI arrested a Georgia man who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and then posted a video on social media bragging that rioters “took the White House,” the Justice Department said Wednesday.
William Frederick Beals II, 52, of Ringgold, Georgia, is charged with a felony count of knowingly making false statements, along with several misdemeanor offenses. Beals, photos show, wore a black helmet with a “F— ANTIFA” sticker on it when he stormed the Capitol.
Photos show that Beals was at the front of the mob, climbing scaffolding to get toward the building, and the FBI said he shouted expletives at police. Beals was arrested in Georgia last week, and he made his initial appearance in Tennessee.
