QAnon Bear Spray Riot Suspect Loses Bid To Move Trial

Law & Crime reports:

The judge overseeing the case of a California man accused of assaulting police during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has denied his request to move the case out of Washington, D.C.

Sean Michael McHugh, who allegedly accused police of “protecting pedophiles” before attacking them with a metal sign and bear spray during a confrontation on the west side of the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, said that he wouldn’t be able to get a fair trial in the nation’s capital.

McHugh himself has been convicted of a sex crime against a minor. He is now charged with felony assault, civil disorder, obstruction of Congress, as well as various other felonies and misdemeanors.
