'Cowboys for Trump' Capitol rioter isolated in jail for refusing COVID-19 test: report

Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin -- the co-founder of "Cowboys for Trump" who took part in the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6th that took five lives -- has been moved to isolation in jail for refusing to take a COVID-19 test.

According to a report from Yahoo, Griffin has been fighting for his release, and now is saying "he was struggling in isolation," after he refused the test for the safety of all around him.

According to Yahoo, Griffin is currently being held for "knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority" and "intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business."

His arrest was made easier after he posted videos of himself during the riot online.

The new report states, "Griffin's lawyer filed a motion for his client's release, saying that he was struggling in isolation. In response, the judge said that "simply taking a COVID-19 test, something hundreds of millions of people have safely done across the world, will allow the defendant to exit isolation."
