A Florida man indicted for the January 6 attack on the US Capitol
The US Capitol attacks took place on January 6 in Washington. Law enforcement officials determined that a Florida man from the far-right Oath Keepers militia group was involved in the US Capitol attack. The Florida man was arrested after the accusation file was created about the incident.
An arrest warrant has been issued for James Beeks, 49, of Orlando, on charges of obstruction of Congress, trespassing into a restricted building, and illegally entering grounds. Beeks was arrested by the police in Milwaukee. He was subsequently brought to court in Wisconsin.
After the hearing in Wisconsin, it was announced that court proceedings could take a long time. Beeks was released until the procedures were completed. The case was later transferred to the Washington federal court. The scope of the investigation was expanded and additional information was collected.
The event, which went down in history as the January 6 US Capitol raid, happened after the election race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Joe Biden had won the election and a group of Trump supporters had stormed the US Capitol, opposing the election victory. During the events, 5 people died.
During the attack, members of the Oath Keeper militia had captured certain points on the Capitol grounds. They had moved towards the area outside the Rotunda gate on the eastern steps. Finally, the door was broken and the militia group had entered the Capitol. Beeks was part of the group that attacked law enforcement in these events.
After the Oath Keeper militia group entered the Capitol, they dispersed into various areas within the building. The Beeks, on the other hand, was in the group trying to dodge several law enforcement officers guarding the so-called Senate Chamber. Law enforcement dispersed this group. Beeks and those with him regrouped at the Rotunda gate and eventually left the building.
In his information about the events, Beeks stated that he met Oath Keeper at Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally. During the US Capitol raid, other members of the group wore camouflaged combat gear. Beeks, on the other hand, was wearing a jacket, a black helmet, and a thing that looked like a shield.
According to court records, a lawyer was not available to conduct Beeks’ defense. Since January 6, hundreds of people from 50 different states have been arrested for the US Capitol raid. More than half of these people were accused of assaulting law enforcement.
