The former State Department official accused of brawling with Capitol Police during the Jan. 6 riot had a number of previous run-ins with the law—including a 2013 assault charge.

Less than four years before he joined the State Department as a Trump administration political appointee, Federico "Freddie" Klein allegedly assaulted a woman, stealing two items from her car after wrestling her out of the way during an altercation.

According to charging documents obtained by VICE News from the Baltimore County circuit court, a woman named Carol Anderson who volunteered with the anti-abortion group American Life League told police that she had an argument with Klein on July 25, 2013, that turned physical.
