In a new complaint filed on Friday, the US attorney's office in Washington charged Shroyer with illegally going into a restricted area on the Capitol grounds and disorderly conduct. He's one of the highest-profile right-wing media personalities to be prosecuted in connection with the insurrection so far.

Shroyer, who is based in Texas, had been photographed on a stage outside the Capitol with right-wing activist and Infowars founder Alex Jones, and the FBI said it received an anonymous tip from someone noting another video that appeared to show Shroyer at the top of a set of stairs on the east side of the Capitol. Jones has not been charged.

Shroyer hosts the Infowars program War Room With Owen Shroyer and has talked at length on his show over the past eight months about the Jan. 6 riots and the subsequent investigation. A Utah man charged with illegally going into the Capitol, John Earle Sullivan, even briefly landed in trouble with the government when he appeared on Shroyer's program after he'd been arrested and then allowed to go home subject to a set of court-imposed restrictions on his internet use and other activities.
