Michael Sparks

Sparks is pictured entering the Capitol Building through a broken window, one that he allegedly helped break with other individuals.  He was one of the first individuals that gets inside the building, entering around 2:13.  Once inside, Sparks appears to be non-violent with Capitol Police Officers, and with other individuals as well.

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