Affidavits obtained by CNN and The Daily Beast said one person was charged with repeatedly punching a Capitol Police officer during the riot.

Chansley of Arizona, who the DOJ says is also known as Jake Angeli, is identified as the so-called "QAnon shaman" who was seen in several photos - most memorably standing at the Senate dais - with his face painted and wearing a bearskin headdress. Some of the 68 people arrested by Washington, D.C police after Wednesday's assault on the seat of the United States government appeared in the Superior Court for the District of Columbia on Thursday, with most facing initial charges related to unlawful entry or violating a curfew imposed to quell the violence. Newsweek reports Barnett, 60, was arrested in Little Rock, Arkansas, on charges of entering and remaining on restricted grounds, violent entry and theft of public property.

Jacob Anthony Chansley, Adam Johnson and Derrick Evans were all charged in a federal court Saturday for their alleged actions during Wednesday's insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, said a DOJ statement.

"Our goal is to preserve the public's constitutional right to protest by protecting everyone from violence and other criminal activity", the statement continued.

The judge ordered he must remain in custody, pending a hearing on January 13. Sicknick's death brought the number of fatalities in the riot to five. Sicknick was injured while engaging with the rioting protesters on Wednesday and collapsed when he returned to his office, the USCP said.

U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) later announced the death of Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who died as a result of injuries he suffered Wednesday.

Pelosi on Friday ordered flags at the Capitol lowered to half-staff in honor of Sicknick.
