Man Seen Carrying Pelosi’s Lectern During Capitol Riot Arrested

A man who was photographed carrying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lectern through the Capitol building during Wednesday’s deadly riot was arrested Friday, NBC affiliate WFLA reports.

Adam Johnson, 36, of Parrish, Florida was booked in the Pinellas County Jail on a US Marshal warrant. A married father of five, Johnson is an unaffiliated voter who cast a ballot in the 2004 and 2020 presidential elections.

The FBI has sought help in identifying the hundreds of rioters who broke into the Capitol as Congress counted the electoral votes affirming President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

Several dozen other individuals have been charged thus far.
