A man photographed in the U.S. Capitol carrying a 6-foot spear and wearing a horned helmet as a pro-Trump mob breached the building Wednesday has been arrested and charged, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia said.

According to NBC News, Jacob Anthony Chansley, 33, also known as Jake Angeli, a longtime QAnon supporter from Arizona, was one of the rioters in the Capitol.

Before his arrest, Chansley called police and confessed he was photographed standing at Vice President Mike Pence's chair on the Senate dais, bare-chested, face painted and carrying the spear, according to court documents.

Chansley can be seen in several photos shirtless with bold makeup, wearing horns and fur and holding a flag inside the Capitol building.

He was carrying a six-foot spear with an American flag tied below the blade through the Capitol when he roamed the halls of Congress and stood on the dais inside the Senate chamber, court documents said.

Chansley called and voluntarily spoke with law enforcement on Jan. 7, the day after the riots, court docments say.

In an interview with NBC News before his arrest, Chansley gloated about how the mob infiltrated the Capitol, forcing lawmakers to flee. »
