Man allegedly carrying Confederate flag during Capitol siege arrested

The man who allegedly walked around the Capitol with a Confederate flag has been arrested.

Kevin Seefried, the man who was allegedly seen at the Capitol during the siege with a Confederate flag, was arrested on Thursday in Delaware. The charges against him were not immediately disclosed, but he’s expected to appear in court for the first time on Thursday.

The chaos at the Capitol, which occurred as Congress sought to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory, led to five deaths, countless injuries, the destruction of federal property, a lockdown of the Capitol, and dozens of arrests. It only temporarily stopped Congress from certifying the Electoral College vote for Biden.

Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin said on Tuesday that the Justice Department opened more than 170 case files related to the storming of the Capitol and that a strike force was also looking into possible charges of sedition and conspiracy, along with specialists exploring charges related to the targeting of law enforcement and the media.

A number of others who participated in the violence surrounding the Capitol on Jan. 6 have been charged with federal crimes, including one who was allegedly in possession of 11 Molotov cocktails, one who repeatedly punched a police officer in the face and chest, one who was wearing a “Camp Auschwitz” sweatshirt, another who dubbed himself the “QAnon shaman” and was pictured on the Senate dais, and many more.

Two off-duty Virginia police officers were also charged and arrested on Tuesday in federal court in the District of Columbia for their actions at the Capitol.
