The fallout in connection to the deadly U.S. Capitol siege continues, as another alleged participant from the tri-state area was charged in connection to the events that unfolded on Jan. 6. Jeffrey Sabol turned himself in to FBI in Rye, New York, NBC 4 New York has learned.
According to the federal prosecutor, Sabol was seen on video allegedly pulling an officer down the stairs, while allowing another man to hit the officer with a flag. Additionally, he may have assaulted another officer in an attempt to get their baton.
Sabol allegedly tried to flee the country to Switzerland, according to the federal prosecutor. He also allegedly attempted suicide following the Jan. 6 event, which the federal government notes is a sign of possible guilt.
