An alleged Capitol rioter was busted after investigators matched video showing his oversized stomach tattoo to an old mug shot, federal authorities said.
James Burton McGrew, 39, who allegedly struck two cops during the Jan. 6 siege, was arrested Friday in Glendale, Arizona, after his large “KING JAMES” stomach ink was tied to the 2012 booking photo, a federal criminal complaint shows.
Video footage from a police officer’s body camera caught McGrew inside the US Capitol as rioters tried to disrupt the certification of President Biden’s election victory, according to the complaint.
McGrew allegedly lifted his shirt to wipe his eyes while inside the building, revealing the tattoo that ultimately led to his identification and subsequent arrest.
An FBI Joint Task Force Officer wrote in the complaint that McGrew “aggressively approached” law enforcement officers inside the Capitol while holding up his phone and identifying them by name and badge number.
