A former Florida police officer has been arrested after he entered the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and posted a live video to Facebook from inside the building, according to the FBI.
The Miami Herald reports that former North Miami Beach police officer Nicholes Lentz, 41, was arrested on Friday. He has been charged with entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct, the same charges that have been levied against the majority of those arrested for their involvement in the Capitol breach.
Lentz, a former U.S. Marine, left the North Miami Beach police department in August of 2020 after four years, the Herald reports. He is not currently a sworn police officer in Florida.
According to court records obtained by the Herald, Lentz posted a video of himself inside the Capitol building on Facebook. Lentz told the FBI he stayed inside the Capitol for about two hours, the Herald reports, and has not been charged with committing any acts of physical violence.
“America has spoken. You can not stop millions of people,” Lentz says in the video according to the FBI affidavit.
