The New York Daily News reports:
A retired FDNY firefighter from Long Island is facing charges for storming the U.S. Capitol after sending a selfie to a friend from inside the building’s famed rotunda, the Daily News has learned.
Thomas Fee, 53, of Freeport, told the friend he was at the “tip of the spear” during the deadly Jan. 6 siege, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office District of Columbia.
The 22-year retired veteran of ‘New York’s Bravest’ was charged with disorderly conduct and entering a restricted building. He has not yet been arrested. Fee also appeared in a video from inside the halls of Congress where a crowd of people were yelling “tyranny.”
