Notorious MAGA-rioting alt-right troll convicted of assaulting bouncer who booted him out of a bar

Anthime Joseph "Tim" Gionet, the far-right livestreaming Capitol insurrectionist known as "Baked Alaska," has been convicted of assaulting a bouncer outside a Scottsdale, Arizona, bar in December 2020.

Nick Martin of The Informant reports that a judge found Gionet guilty on Friday of criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct, and assault.

The charges stem from an incident in which Gionet pepper-sprayed a bouncer after being kicked out of a bar. The assault was captured in one of Gionet's livestreams, according to a report from Phoenix New Times.

"As his companions yell at the bouncer, Gionet pulls out a pouch containing a pepper spray capsule. He removes it, takes a step towards the bouncer and blasts him in the face from around five feet way," Phoenix New Times reported in a story about Gionet's arrest last year. "For those unfamiliar with Gionet, he has previously: tweeted about sending Jewish people to gas chambers, hung out with neo-Nazi blogger Andrew Anglin, and chanted the white supremacist slogan 'You will not replace us!' at the Charlottesville torchlight rally."

Gionet was later arrested in the Jan. 6 insurrection, after he livestreamed himself for 27 minutes while inside the Capitol.

"The FBI subsequently used the video to identify and arrest dozens of the rioters captured on camera, including Gionet himself," Vice reported. "He was arrested on multiple counts, including unlawful entry, violent entry, and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds."

In June, a federal judge allowed Gionet to continue streaming videos while he awaits trial.

"Gionet's attorney has argued in court records that Gionet was acting as a member of the press when he entered the U.S. Capitol, and he filmed," according to the Arizona Republic.
