ANew Jersey man has been arrested in connection with the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 for allegedly assaulting several police officers and spraying them with a chemical irritant.

Christopher Joseph Quaglin was arrested Tuesday on charges of assaulting, resisting or impeding officers, civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding, according to an affidavit.

Video shows Quaglin at the riot wearing a red, white and blue shirt that read “Make America Great Again,” a black helmet and a gas mask, the affidavit states.

Hundreds of people have already been arrests in connection with the riot, now over three months old.

The affidavit states Quaglin “can be seen (on video) repeatedly assaulting multiple law enforcement officers guarding the Capitol.”

Officials also said that he yelled at a Metropolitan Police Department officer, “You don’t want this fight. You do not want this f&*#$^$ fight.”

Surveillance video also shows Quaglin shoving several officers and holding one officer by the neck, authorities say.

Quaglin is also seen attacking officers with a stolen riot shield and spraying them with a chemical irritant, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit states law enforcement was tipped by an anonymous source about a Facebook account under the name “Chris Trump” and that Quaglin was identified in videos posted to the account. 

One of the videos filmed after Quaglin returned to his hotel room after the riot shows him saying, “When you guys see the footage, I was the guy in the red, white and blue hoodie and the black helmet. … I’m absolutely on a loop on Fox News. … I got punched pretty good. … It was a great time, I got bumps and bruises.”

In another video, the affidavit states, Quaglin was shirtless “as he narrates while cooking a steak in his shower.”

[VIDEO] Actress Jurnee Smollett Plays Race Card in Call to ‘Free Jussie’ — ‘Stop Locking Up Our People’

Published

Jussie Smollett’s sister, actress Jurnee Smollett, is calling for Cook County to “#FreeJussie” following her brother’s sentencing Thursday, telling her followers they should advocate for his release — because of disparate incarceration between black and white Americans — even if they believe he is guilty.

Jurnee Smollett’s call for Cook County to “#FreeJussie” comes after her brother was sentenced to 150 days in jail for staging a fake hate crime against himself in January 2019.

“Black Americans are incarcerated in state prisons at nearly five times the rate of White Americans,” she wrote in her Instagram caption. “Jussie is innocent. And… you don’t have to believe in his innocence to believe he should be free.”

The actress included the hashtags “Free Jussie” and “Stop Locking Up Our People.”

In January 2019, Smollett had claimed he was physically attacked by two men wearing red hats who put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him, before eventually yelling, “This is MAGA country!” in reference to former President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan.

On Thursday, Judge James Linn sentenced Smollett to 150 days in jail, 30 months of probation, restitution of $120,106, and a fine of $25,000.

“You’re just a charlatan, pretending to be a victim of a hate crime,” Judge Linn told Smollett during Thursday’s sentencing, adding that the actor’s “very name has become an adverb for ‘lying.’”

“Your performance on the witness stand, this can only be described as pure perjury,” the judge added. “You committed hour upon hour upon hour of pure perjury.”

Smollett is now a convicted felon.

The actor repeatedly shouted, “I am not suicidal, and I am innocent” as he was being hauled off to jail on Thursday.

On Saturday, Smollett’s brother Jocqui Smollett reported that the actor has been placed in a psych ward at the Cook County jail.

Wisconsin Waiter Shot in the Face by Two Women After Forgetting Their Hamburger

Two women in Wisconsin have been charged with first-degree intentional homicide after shooting a restaurant server in the face after he forgot to bring one of the hamburgers they ordered.

Bryanna Johnson and Breanta Johnson, both 20 years old, were in a group of four at a George Webb restaurant in Wauwatosa. This group was being “impatient and rude”, according to one of the restaurant staff members.

One of the women in the group was even asked to leave, which she did but only for a brief period of time before returning to the establishment. Later, while the group of women was up by the register, one of them punched their 26-year-old server in the face, then proceeded to pull out a handgun and shot the victim in the face while he was lying on the ground.

The victim, who was, fortunately, able to survive the gunshot wound, told the police that the altercation was a result of the women’s order missing a hamburger. Apparently, that’s what this man’s life was worth to these women. A single hamburger.

Bryanna and Breanta Johnson’s bond is set at $100,000 and are scheduled to appear in court for preliminary hearings on February 15.
