The Kansas City Star reports:
A Kansas City man has been criminally charged in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection after he apparently on Facebook documented himself climbing the western wall and posting a photograph from the top.
Carey Jon Walden, 47, faces four federal criminal charges, including disorderly or disruptive conduct and unlawfully entering restricted grounds. He was charged last week following an investigation led by the FBI that tracked his personal social media posts and interviewed him in Kansas City, court records show.
Authorities say they received a public tip that Walden may have participated in the capitol riot a little more than a week after the events unfolded.
