Antionne Brodnax

Brodnax told police he traveled to DC prior to January 6th to shoot a music video. While he was there, he noticed a rally downtown and followed the crowd inside the Capitol. He took photos inside and asked others to take pictures of him. However-according to a government affidavit-he stole nothing from inside the building. He did not engage in violent activity.
