Matthew Beddingfield

Beddingfield is accused of shoving police with a flag outside of the Capitol. There appear to be injured protesters lying on the ground.

He later entered the building and walked through the rotunda with his flag.

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