Jake Angeli charged after horned QAnon shaman stormed Capitol in riot carnage

JAKE Angeli, the horned QAnon "shaman" seen at the helm of the Capitol riots led by far-right extremists, has been arrested.

The Department of Justice arrested three men in relation to the Capitol riots in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, citing Angeli's incredibly visible attire as reason why it quickly led to his capture.

"Jacob Anthony Chansley, a.k.a. Jake Angeli, of Arizona, was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds," the DOJ wrote. "Chansley was taken into custody today."

"It is alleged that Chansley was identified as the man seen in media coverage who entered the Capitol building dressed in horns, a bearskin headdress, red, white and blue face paint, shirtless, and tan pants."

"This individual carried a spear, approximately 6 feet in length, with an American flag tied just below the blade."

Chansley's case is being prosecuted by the DC Attorney's Office and is still being investigated by the FBI and Capitol Police.
