Chance Anthony Uptmore

Chance Uptmore said he entered the Capitol building because he was caught up in the crowd, and because it was a once in a lifetime event.  His father, James Uptmore (aka Sonny), advised Chance not to go inside. There is no violence accounted for either of these two men on January 6.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
