Two men photographed in the Senate chamber holding zip ties have now been charged in connection with Wednesday's attack on the U.S. Capitol, the Department of Justice announced Sunday.

Larry Brock of Texas and Eric Munchel of Tennessee, who became known as "zip-tie guy," both face charges of unlawful entry on restricted property and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

According to the Justice Department's press release, Munchel was the man pictured in a viral photo wearing tactical gear carrying zip ties in the Senate chamber. The New Yorker has reported that Brock is an Air Force veteran, having served in combat in Afghanistan.
