An actor from Dallas, Texas, who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 and was captured on video holding a crutch as insurrectionists climbed the stairs to the Capitol building, has been arrested according to the Dallas Morning News.

Luke Russell Coffee, 41, has an online biography that says he worked on two primetime television shows for Warner Brothers and NBC/Universal and started a production company in his hometown in 2010.

He has been charged with assault of a federal law enforcement officer with a dangerous weapon; interference with a law enforcement officer during civil disorder; obstruction of an official proceeding; unlawful entry on restricted grounds; and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, the Morning News reports.

A college classmate of Coffee's, who also happens to be an FBI agent, helped identify him. Another witnesses told the FBI that they saw video featuring Coffee discussing conspiracy theories.

Coffee admitted to police that he was at the Capitol on Jan 6. and that he was holding a crutch but denies he used it to assault anyone.
