Far-right internet troll Tim Gionet, better known as Baked Alaska, was arrested Friday for his role in the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol.

Gionet was arrested by the FBI on charges of "knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority" and "violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds," a criminal complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News shows.

Gionet (who briefly worked for BuzzFeed years ago) livestreamed the Jan. 6 attack on Congress on DLive, a streaming platform popular with right-wing extremists, and at one point turned the camera to show his face.
