The FBI included images of "Spazzo" in and around the Capitol as part of a dossier of rioters whom they consider people of interest, and asked the public to come forward with any information that could lead to their arrest. Spazzo's actions, caught on video by journalist Brendan Gutenschwager, shed light on what the Proud Boys were up to at the Capitol on January 6.

The Proud Boys typically move around public demonstrations like a small army, flooding entire blocks in their trademark black and yellow colors. But on this day, their strategy was to avoid detection. Their self-styled "chairman," Enrique Tarrio, had ordered the Proud Boys to go "incognito" and dress in plain clothes, so while they were central to the planning, inciting, and execution of the insurrection that led to five deaths, their role was not immediately obvious from the video disseminated from the scene.

In a stream from before the rally, Joe Biggs, a former InfoWars staffer who led the Proud Boys in Tarrio's absence, reiterated the plan for the group not to wear their traditional colors.

"We will not be attending D.C. in colors. We will be blending in as one of you. You won't see us. You'll even think we are you," Biggs said. "We are going to smell like you, move like you, and look like you. The only thing we'll do that's us is think like us! Jan 6th is gonna be epic."
