A officer with the Chicago Police Department was arrested and charged Friday for his alleged role in the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, according to the city's police chief.

Karol J. Chwiesiuk, a 29-year-old officer with the Chicago Police Department, was arrested by FBI and CPD officers around 8 a.m. local time and charged with five misdemeanors Friday afternoon, including knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building and violent entry or disorderly conduct at the Capitol, according to Chicago Police Superintendent David O.

Brown said Chwiesiuk was relieved of his police powers on June 2, as soon as federal authorities informed the department of their investigation.

"The fact that a Chicago Police officer has been charged in that attack on American democracy makes my blood boil, makes me sick to my stomach, and yes, if these allegations are true, it breaks my heart," Brown said.

"Participating in the siege on the Capitol in any way was a betrayal of everything we stand for," Brown said.

According to the criminal complaint, Chwiesiuk's alleged role was identified through mobile internet records obtained "pursuant to a legal process.".

Retired officers from the New York City Police Department and Houston Police Department were arrested and charged in connection with the riot. »
