James Robinson

Robinson says he heard people at the Capitol screaming and yelling for help as he was eating lunch a few blocks away. He immediately went to the steps and claims he was sucked into the crowd when he entered the building. Inside the building, he appears to cheer and talk with others. At one point, he allegedly took a velvet rope from the Rotunda and started carrying it around with him.

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