Samuel Montoya, identified as a video editor for the Infowars far-right conspiracy website, was arrested for participating in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.

Federal agents arrested Montoya at his Texas home on April 13, and he was charged Wednesday on four counts: entering and remaining in a restricted building; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a Capitol building; impeding passage through the Capitol grounds or buildings; and "parading, demonstrating or picketting" in a Capitol building.

In a court affidavit submitted preceding Montoya's arrest, a FBI counterterrorism special agent in the San Antonio field office (whose named is redacted) cited a 44-minute video embedded with the tag "THERESISTANCE.VIDEO" whose narrator identifies himself as "Sam with Infowars.com."
