Fox News reports:
A New Jersey gym owner and former ultimate fighter who got attention for defying the COVID lockdown was arrested for his role in the Capitol riot on Friday after several people identified him to the FBI, according to court papers.
Scott Kevin Fairlamb of Stockholm, N.J., who fought under the name “Wildman,” was charged in federal court in Washington, D.C., with assaulting a federal officer and carrying a dangerous weapon, according to documents.
At least one person submitted a video that allegedly showed Fairlamb shove and punch an officer on the West Front of the Capitol. Another showed him on the scaffolding outside the Capitol, and an officer’s body cam shows him standing in the crowd wearing camouflage jacket and red shoes.
