‘Tragic and stupid’: Music students ‘heartbroken’ after learning their teacher was a Trump rioter

A North Carolina man was arrested and charged this Monday in connection with the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, WRAL reports.

Stephen Maury Baker, 33, was arrested on charges of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority.

Court documents reveal that Baker broadcasted the riot on YouTube under the name "Stephen Ignoramus" in a livestream that went on for over three hours.

"I was inside for like an hour, dude. I was one of like the last 10 people in there," Baker said in the video.

"Thank you for coming everyone. That was so epic. Historic day," he adds.

Baker was identified to the FBI by at least three people.

The owner of a music store where Baker taught guitar, bass, piano, and drums said she was shocked to learn of Baker's involvement in the riot.

"He is a brilliant teacher – not a good teacher, a brilliant teacher," Myrna Sislen said "[His students] were heartbroken. I had to break the hearts of 40 kids, and it was horrible."

"The whole thing is just tragic, absolutely tragic and stupid. 'Ignoramus' is an apt pseudonym for this guy," Sislen added. "I think what's the most tragic about this is the ripple effect of this thing. You have somebody doing this action, and how does it ripple and go back into the community."
