MN Man Charged In Riot “Said Goodbye To Children”

Minneapolis’s CBS News affiliate reports:

A 42-year-old Minneapolis man has been taken into custody and charged with allegedly assaulting a federal officer during the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.

Mock is seen in body camera footage amongst the crowd of violent rioters who were advancing on officers defending the Capitol, the complaint said. At one point, he is seen shoving a U.S. Capitol officer to the ground. He then allegedly picked up multiple riot shields that officers were using and passed them back to members of the rioting crowd.

Mock’s girlfriend allegedly posted on Facebook, tagging Mock, and said that they were teargassed, pepper sprayed and mustard gassed at the Capitol, but “stayed true to being Patriots” and “stormed the Frontline.”
