The latest to find themselves in handcuffs comes straight from Hollywood.
An actor who was arrested last week and charged with breaching the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot was recorded on video singing “The Star Spangled Banner,” court records showed.
The man, Michael Aaron Carico, 33, is charged with several counts related to allegations that he participated in the riot, according to a federal criminal complaint. Evidence against Carico included photos and videos of him on the Capitol grounds that were obtained from a confidential source, GPS data and additional photos and videos secured through a search warrant of Carico’s Gmail account, according to the complaint written by an FBI special agent.
