MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – At least three men from Florida, including one who was photographed carrying Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s lectern, have been charged with unlawful entry in the chaotic breach of the U.S. Capitol by a mob supporting President Donald Trump.
Adam Johnson, 36, is charged with one count of knowingly entering a restricted building without lawful authority.
He also faces one count of theft of government property and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
Johnson, a resident of Parrish, Florida, is a stay-at-home father who lives with his wife, a doctor, and five children, according to The Bradenton Herald.
In addition, officials say a Florida firefighter has been placed on leave after photos surfaced of him participating in Wednesday’s violent event.
The U.S. Capitol Police say John Anderson of St. Augustine, Michael Curzio of Summerfield and Matthew Council of Riverview are facing the unlawful entry charges.
“The USCP is continuing to review surveillance video and open source material to identify others who may be subject to criminal charges,” Capitol Police said in a press release.
