‘This is why you’re free!’ Virginia man arrested for actions, recording selfie video for his grandkids during Jan. 6 riot


WASHINGTON — A Virginia man was arrested today on felony and misdemeanor charges for his actions during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. His actions and the actions of others disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress convened to ascertain and count the electoral votes related to the presidential election.

Henos Woldemichael, 21, of Burke, Virginia, is charged in a criminal complaint filed in the District of Columbia with interfering with law enforcement officers during a civil disorder, as well as related misdemeanor offenses. Woldemichael was arrested in the District of Columbia. He is scheduled to make his initial appearance today in the District of Columbia.

According to court documents, on Jan. 6, 2021, Woldemichael illegally entered the Capitol grounds. At approximately 2:47 p.m., he entered the Capitol. He then aggressively pushed a podium placed in the middle doorway – which had acted as a barrier between the law enforcement officers and the rioters – against the officers. He moved into the vestibule, where he recorded a selfie stating, “See grandkids, this is what it’s all about. This is why you’re free. All these great patriots.”

He then moved to the Crypt and other areas, including the office of Senator Jeff Merkley, where he knocked over a lamp. Woldemichael left the Capitol at approximately 3:16 p.m.
