Capitol Riot's Alleged 'Zip Tie Guy' Arrested in Nashville
Jan 12 2021
Two men seen carrying zip tie-style restraints when supporters of President Donald Trumpbreached the U.S. Capitol were charged Sunday in federal court, authorities said.
More information is emerging about the domestic terrorists behind the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
The US Department of Justice said Munchel was apparently photographed carrying a bunch of "plastic restraints", a hip holster, and camera mount attached to a vest "ostensibly to record events that day". We have no affiliation with this employee and their actions were their own.
Brock was the guy photographed holding zip ties inside the Senate chamber and was pretty easy to ID as he was decked out in body armor, a military helmet and a tag with a Punisher skull. but his former spouse provided further intel to law enforcement.
Brock, 53, a father of three from Grapevine, Texas, retired from the Air Force as deputy director of its admissions liaison officer program, which oversees personnel who recruit prospective military officers, the Air Force said.
He is charged with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on the Capitol grounds.

Farrow, who spoke with Brock and confirmed his participation in the riot, reported that Brock told him he had found the handcuffs on the floor and picked them up, then regretted it; and that he denied entering House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office suite, despite video that appeared to show him emerging from there.
She told authorities: "I just know that when I saw this was happening I was afraid he would be there". "I think you already know he was there".
Brock is the second member of the Air Force to be implicated in the Capitol Hill riot.
He told the New Yorker before his arrest that he was an Air Force veteran, and he acknowledged entering the Capitol building. Angeli was arrested in Arizona and faces the same charges as Brock and Munchel.
Brock and Munchel are among dozens of people the Federal Bureau of Investigation have arrested since Wednesday's insurrection at the Capitol, in which five people died, including a US Capitol Police officer.
Their work includes trying to determine the motives of those who had weapons or other gear suggestive of a plot to do physical harm.
