The Florida man who was photographed carrying U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s podium from the House of Representative chambers during the U.S. Capitol’s riot has been arrested.
The suspect identified as 36-year-old Adam Christian of Parrish in Florida was arrested on a federal warrant and booked into the Pinellas County jail Friday night, the records said. No bond was allowed.
In his mugshot, Johnson, who was clean shaven, appeared in the photo with a beard and a wool hat with “Trump” written on the top.
No attorney information for Johnson was immediately available. The status of the podium is not immediately known.
In addition to Johnson’s arrest, at least 13 people were facing criminal charges in U.S. District Court in connection to the riot. At least another 40 people faced lesser charges in the District of Columbia Superior Court, a local venue.
Many of those individuals were arraigned on Thursday and released, with an order from the judge not to return to Washington unless for court appearances or meetings with their attorneys.
They included Cleveland Meredith, charged with threatening Pelosi and possession of an unregistered firearm and unregistered ammunition, and Richard Barnett, the Gravette, Arkansas, the man who was photographed sitting at Pelosi’s desk and is also known as Bigo. Here
