The man who allegedly walked around the Capitol with a Confederate flag has been arrested.
Kevin Seefried, the man who was allegedly seen at the Capitol during the siege with a Confederate flag, was arrested on Thursday along with his son, Hunter Seefried, in Delaware.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Justice Department said Thursday that the men were both charged with “one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of depredation of government property.”
The report states that the two men climbed through a broken window to get into the Capitol building, and were there less than 30 minutes. Video footage shows Hunter Seefried “punching out glass in a window in the Capitol complex” after others had broken the window with a wooden plank.
They were also among a group of people who “verbally confronted several U.S. Capitol police officers for approximately 15 minutes.”
Hunter’s co-worker reportedly tipped off the FBI, saying Hunter had bragged about he and his father being inside the Capitol building on Jan. 6.
