There was Adam Johnson, dressed in a wool Trump hat and Asics running shoes as he posed for photos in the Capitol while carrying away Nancy Pelosi's lectern. The stay-at-home father was arrested at his home in Florida.

In Chicago, federal agents arrested Brad Rukstales, the chief executive of a marketing technology firm, for being among the rampagers at the Capitol. "It was the single worst personal decision of my life," Rukstales said in a statement on Twitter.

Derrick Evans, a Republican state lawmaker from West Virginia, livestreamed himself storming into the U.S. Capitol. "We're in! We're in!" Evans said. "Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!" Evans resigned from his elected position in West Virginia, and like dozens of other alleged rioters, he faces criminal charges in Washington, D.C.
