The Chicago Tribune reports:
A Chicago police officer was arrested Friday on federal charges of breaching the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and entering a Democratic senator’s office with the violent mob, later texting to a friend that he’d “knocked out a commie.”
Officer Karol Chwiesiuk, 29, was charged in a criminal complaint in U.S. District Court in Washington with five misdemeanor counts, including entering a restricted building, disrupting government business and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds with intent to impede a congressional proceeding.
The 19-page complaint alleges Chwiesiuk broke into Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley’s office with the mob and took a selfie showing him grinning and wearing a hoodie with the Chicago police logo on it.
