Richard Barnett, rioter who lounged at Pelosi’s desk, arrested in Arkansas


A West Virginia lawmaker who filmed himself storming the US Capitol  — and the rioter who gloated as he sat at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s desk — were among those charged Friday over the chaos, authorities said.

Mountain State delegate Derrick Evans — who balked at calls for him to resign after recording himself inside the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday shouting, “We’re in, baby!’’ — was federally charged with entering a restricted area, according to local CBS-TV affiliate WDTV in West Virginia.

Evans was expected to be released from federal custody Friday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Richard Barnett — who was caught in a now-infamous viral photo lounging back in Pelosi’s chair in her private congressional office with his feet up on her desk after he and the pro-Trump mob infiltrated the building — was nabbed in Little Rock, Ark., CNN reported.
