A man who allegedly entered U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office illegally during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol was arrested Wednesday in Denver by the FBI, court records show.

In a Feb. 6 interview with federal investigators, Palm admitted to entering the Capitol on Jan. 6 and gave his phone and a flash drive of videos from that day to agents, according to his arrest affidavit.

He also gave investigators the clothes he wore that day, including a flag with the words “TRUMP” and “Keep America Great.”.

Palm told investigators he was pushed into the Capitol, but surveillance video from the Capitol shows him walking in freely, the affidavit states.

The family member told the FBI that Palm had called from Washington on Jan. 6 and said he entered the Capitol.

He appeared Wednesday in federal court in Denver and was released from custody on a personal recognizance bond, court records show.

Eight Coloradans previously have been arrested on charges that they participated in the riot, which disrupted the certification of the 2020 presidential election results. »

In an interview with Collider, Bautista says that he turned down an offer from Universal to play a role in a Fast & The Furious movie in order to promote a Gears of War adaptation.

They wanted to talk to me about Fast and the Furious, and I said 'I’m not interested, let’s talk about [Gears of War character] Marcus Fenix.’”.

While the Gears of War movie shows no recent signs of life, it can’t be understated that turning down a Fast & The Furious job simply to badger Universal again is no small decision. »
