The Hartford Courant reports:
A 23-year old man from Ridgefield has accused of being part of a group that violently assaulted a police officer during what federal authorities describe as a coordinated effort to break through one of the U.S. Capitol entrances during the violent attack on the Congress on January 6.
Patrick Edward McCaughey III is accused of being at the front of a mob that stormed the Capitol and bloodied Metropolitan police officer Daniel Hodges, who had been called to the Capitol to support the U.S. Capitol Police, who were being overwhelmed by rioters.
McCaughey is charged with assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers or employees; civil disorder; entering restricted building or grounds; and violent entry or disorderly conduct.
He’s accused of squeezing Officer Hodges with a riot shield in the Capitol.
