West Virginia State Delegate Derrick Evans (R) was taken into custody by the FBI after he allegedly took part in the storming of the U.S. Capitol building following a “Stop The Steal” rally in Washington.
Evans, a Republican member of the House of Delegates, reportedly livestreamed video of himself and others roaming the Capitol. One video appears to show Evans saying, “We’re in! We’re in, baby! Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!”
On Friday, the Justice Department charged Evans with entering a restricted area, and new footage shows the moment FBI agents apprehended him at a home in West Virginia.
