An Arizona man seen in photos wearing a horned headdress and face paint and wielding a spear inside the Capitol was arrested on Saturday on federal charges.

Shirtless and covered in tattoos, Jacob Chansley was one of the most prominent figures in the Capitol incursion.

According to a Capitol police affidavit, Chansley called the FBI and admitted he was the person in the photographs.

Several others have been arrested in connection with the riot, including Richard Barnett, an Arkansas man photographed sitting in Pelosi’s office, and Derrick Evans, a West Virginia state delegate.

Five people died as a result of the riot, including Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick.
