New York Police Officer Accused of Assaulting Police Officers During Capitol Riots

John O’Kelly, who years ago sued on behalf of a group that believes explosives brought down the Twin Towers on 9/11, was arrested Thursday for assaulting law enforcement during the Riots on January 6, 2021 at the Capitol.

According to official documents, East Williston, Long Island attorney John O’Kelly faces two felony charges: assaulting, resisting or impeding officers and civil disorder, along with four misdemeanor charges.

Authorities have said O’Kelly attempted to disarm a D.C. Metropolitan Police Department officer on January 6, 2021, taking an officer’s baton and “trying to snatch it from the officer’s hands.”

The body camera footage that was cited in official court documents they show the troublemaker pushing the metal bike fence which was used to secure the perimeter of the Capitol.

Prosecutors said that they managed to identify the aggressor thanks to the FBI images were shared via the Sedetion Hunters Twitter account in an online group dealing with capitol rioters in an April 2121 post under the hashtag #MidWhiteCrisis.

This isn’t the first time John O’Kelly has been in trouble. Years ago he represented the Lawyers Committee for the 9/11 Investigation which believes the Twin Towers were brought down by pre-planted explosives.

Until now more than 880 people have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the attack on Capitol Hill, according to the Department of Justice.
