Capitol riot MGN

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky man has been charged with assault on a federal officer and other crimes in connection with the January insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The FBI’s Louisville Field Office said in a statement Tuesday that Stephen Chase Randolph of Harrodsburg has been charged with assaulting a federal officer, obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder and obstruction of justice and Congress.

The agency says Randolph is being held in federal custody and will appear before a federal judge Thursday. The FBI didn't give additional details about his arrest or charges.

It's unclear whether Randolph has an attorney who can comment for him.

At least a dozen other Kentucky residents have been arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 riot in which a mob forced its way into the U.S. Capitol building.

Among them is a Benton, Kentucky, man — Clayton Ray Mullins. Mullins is accused of assaulting two Washington Metropolitan Police officers during the riot. Mullins is set to return to court on May 5 for a status conference.
