Arizona Man Arrested After Capitol Riot Faces More Charges

Additional criminal charges have been filed against an Arizona man who authorities say took part in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol while sporting face paint, and a furry hat with horns.

An indictment unsealed Tuesday in Washington charges 33-year-old Jake Chansley with civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding, disorderly conduct in a restricted building, and demonstrating in a Capitol building.

He had been jailed on misdemeanor charges since surrendering to authorities over the weekend in Phoenix.
