Representative Dan Crenshaw (R., Texas) must pay a $5,000 fine after he allegedly bypassed metal detectors that were installed inside the U.S. Capitol following the January 6 riot, the House Committee on Ethics announced Wednesday.
The congressman reportedly refused to comply with security procedures as he entered the Republican cloakroom inside the U.S. Capitol last week, an investigation by the U.S. Capitol Police revealed.
The incident happened on September 23, according to police. Crenshaw received a notice that he violated the House resolution one day later. Members of Congress have repeatedly railed against the metal detectors since they were installed the week after the Capitol riot.
