Jacob Travis Clark, 32, of Trinidad was arrested Wednesday, April 21, and charged for his alleged role in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Clark is the ninth Colorado resident arrested and he appeared in U.S. District Court in Denver on Thursday, April 22. Clark was charged with six counts:
— Knowingly Entering or Remaining in any Restricted Building or Grounds Without Lawful Authority
— Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds
— Engaging in Physical Violence in a Restricted Building or Grounds
— Violent Entry and Disorderly Conduct on Capitol Grounds
— Obstruction of Law Enforcement During Civil Disorder
— Obstruction of Justice/Congress
Clark was released following Thursday’s hearing and is scheduled to appear in federal court this coming Wednesday via remote connection.
According to CBS Denver the FBI’s arrest affidavit stated that investigators connected images of Clark inside the Capitol with his Colorado driver’s license photo. A friend of Clark’s also provided the FBI with images from Clark’s social media account — now deleted — that showed Clark inside the Capitol.
Photos from surveillance cameras and bodycam footage showed Clark entering hallways as Capitol officers retreated. Clark is seen “squaring up,” as the FBI described it, against an officer wearing plain clothes.
Clark is also seen confronting a uniformed Capitol officer in an image taken from video.
The FBI said Clark could be heard in the video threatening the officer. “Next time we’re coming with [unintelligible],” Clark is alleged to have said.
The officers replied that they were just doing their jobs.
“So were the Nazis!” Clark replied, screaming. “Stand down!”
The FBI also presented phone records and GPS and Google positioning of Clark’s phone putting him inside the Capitol that day.
Five people died during the January uprising, some due to medical reasons.
