Law & Crime reports:
A Texas man who got into a scuffle with police outside the Capitol building on Jan. 6 pleaded guilty to a felony. Nolan Cooke was 22 years old when he traveled to D.C. with his girlfriend and joined the mob of Donald Trump supporters lashing out over Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential win. Although Cooke never made it inside the Capitol that day, he got physical with police during a confrontation outside the building.
