House speaker’s office invader to be put under house arrest


LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (AP) – An Arkansas man pictured sitting at a desk in the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during the riot on the United States Capitol last week has been subpoenaed at residence on Friday while awaiting trial.

US Magistrate Judge Erin Wiedemann posted a $ 5,000 bond for Richard Barnett and confined him to his home in Gravette, Arkansas, with a GPS monitor to track his location. Wiedemann also banned Barnett from using the internet or having contact with anyone else who participated in the January 6 violence.

Federal prosecutors have said the Justice Department plans to appeal the order and asked Wiedemann to stay his decision. Barnett was due to be released on Saturday.

Barnett was among the supporters of President Donald Trump who stormed the Capitol. Five people died as a result of the protests and violence, including a Capitol policeman.

Barnett is accused of illegally entering a restricted area with a lethal weapon – in this case, a stun gun. Barnett is also charged with disorderly conduct and theft of public property.

He voluntarily surrendered Jan. 8 to FBI agents at the Benton County Sheriff’s Office in Bentonville, Arkansas, and has remained in the Washington County jail since then.

During an almost four-hour hearing on Friday held by video conference, prosecutors showed photos of Barnett sitting at a desk in Pelosi’s office and a Capitol security video inside the building. They also showed footage of him bragging on a megaphone to a crowd outside the Capitol about the taking of an envelope from the speaker’s office.
