The bare-chested man seen in several videos at the Capital building on Wednesday has officially been arrested.
The man has been identified as Jacob Anthony Chansley, AKA Jake Angeli.
Chansley apparently called into the FBI’s Washington Field Office willingly, according to the Department of Justice.
He admitted to law enforcement that he was the one wearing the outfit.
Thus far he has been charged with knowingly entering the building without lawful authority, and also with “violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capital grounds.”
