L. Brent Bozell IV, son of the conservative media critic who runs the Media Research Center, was captured on video exiting the Capitol building on Jan. 6 insurrection and charged with federal offenses on Tuesday.

The younger Bozell didn't make any attempt to conceal his identity during the riots. Online researchers were able to identify him a blue hoodie sweatshirt that clearly had the name and logo of Hershey Christian Academy, where he coached, on it. According to the criminal affidavit, they then sent that information to an FBI tip line.

Before Bozell IV was officially identified, Hershey Christian Academy said on Facebook, "please understand that the person depicted in the photographs is not a board member, employee, or representative of Hershey Christian Academy." Despite their statements of denial, the academy continued to receive threats, forcing it to close its doors and transition to virtual learning. "Parents and teachers unfortunately have been forced to endure many terrorizing and threatening emails and harassing calls which have brought fear into our community and caused many parents to opt for virtual learning rather than in-person learning," the school stated.
