Federal prosecutors have officially charged a man in connection to the riot and insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, after a Washington, DC, airport police officer helped identify him.
In a recent affidavit filed in federal court, a special agent with the US Capitol Police says the man, John Lolos, was identified by a Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police officer. This came after Lolos was kicked off a Delta flight the afternoon of January 8 at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
The crew had initially decided to turn the plane around while it was taxiing, according to the agent, because Lolos was causing a disturbance by “continuously yelling ‘Trump 2020!'”
The police officer, identified only as Officer Braddock, witnessed Lolos being escorted off the flight, according to the affidavit.
“Officer Braddock was alerted to LOLOS’s activity and witnessed him return to the gate from the airplane, but did not detain or arrest LOLOS when he returned to the gate,” the affidavit says. “Delta booked LOLOS a later flight to his destination, and LOLOS continued to wait at the gate.”
Things are seeming to get in order and hopefully they stay that way. The next four years are pivotal in the future of our country. Getting on the same page or at least agreeing to disagree is far better that continuing to push negativity.
