US Capitol riots: Feds arrest Illinois man allegedly seen fighting National Guard on Tik Tok

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Another person from Illinois is under arrest for allegedly participating in the attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Matthew Capsel was allegedly seen in a Tik Tok video fighting against National Guardsman until he was pepper sprayed outside the U.S. Capitol during the riots on January 6, according to the Justice Department.

The feds said they were contacted by a former neighbor, who reported they had seen multiple social media videos of Capsel "on the frontline of the riot and the breach" and that he was "known to be violent."

The feds said Capsel was arrested in southern Illinois on Tuesday. He is charged with entering a restricted area and resisting law enforcement.
