A Chestertown man was arrested Tuesday and accused of participating in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
Zachariah Sattler is charged with four counts, including entering and remaining in a restricted building and disorderly conduct.
Prosecutors allege Sattler was part of a mob that breached a door on the eastern side of the Capitol as supporters of former President Donald Trump sought to disrupt the certification of the 2020 election results.
In court filings, an FBI investigator says security footage shows Sattler smoking marijuana inside the Capitol Rotunda.
Video shows him walking through Statuary Hall and appearing to pray in front of one of the statues, according to court records.
In May, the FBI executed a search warrant on Sattler’s Google accounts and recovered numerous photographs and videos from Washington, D.C., and the area near the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, according to court records.
In one video, Sattler said he wanted to “go hang out with the Proud Boys for a minute.”
In another, he said, “They dones bustin’ through the gate, we’re going to the motherf-----g Capitol Building!”
Eugene Jeen-Young Kim Ohm, the public defender representing Sattler, said he had no comment.
A preliminary hearing for Sattler is scheduled for Feb. 9, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
