The Arizona Republic reports:
A Scottsdale judge issued a warrant for the arrest Thursday of far-right social media personality Tim “Baked Alaska” Gionet after he said Gionet violated conditions of his release by leaving the state last week to go to Washington, where he apparently livestreamed the U.S. Capitol riot.
Gionet already was facing misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct and criminal trespass in Scottsdale City Court after police allege he refused to leave a Scottsdale bar and then pepper sprayed an employee. He had been released in that case with the agreement he not leave the state without the court’s permission.
A few days ago the New York Times published an exhaustive profile of Gionet without even mentioning the handle that everybody knows him by. He first came to our attention in 2016 when he launched the “tell Starbucks your name is Trump” campaign.

Steaming platform DLive has banned streamers connected to the Capitol riot, including Nick Fuentes, Baked Alaska (who streamed himself breaking into Congress), and Proud Boy rioter Nick Ochs. DLive was key to some far-right income streams, since they could make money on the site. pic.twitter.com/zXWy9ZFuLd
