(CNN) The Justice Department unsealed conspiracy charges against five people associated with the Proud Boys on Thursday in the latest and largest move against the far-right group's coordinated role in the insurrection last month.
In a criminal complaint, an FBI agent described how the group "moved closely to each other" inside the Capitol on January 6 and wore pieces of fluorescent orange tape affixed to their clothing or gear.
Some are accused of leading crowds of rioters as they pushed through multiple police lines and made their way through the Capitol grounds.
They all wore tactical-style gear, including helmets and gloves.
One had a wooden club or ax handle that was initially disguised as a flag.
Authorities arrested the men and women in an early morning sweep Thursday.
Chrestman is charged separately with conspiracy but grouped together with the others by an FBI agent in an affidavit. »
