Salvador Sandoval Jr.

Although his actions prior to entry are not detailed, Salvador Sandoval is caught on video pushing two different law enforcement officers who are clearly identified as Metropolitan Police Officers via insignias on their jackets and helmets inside the Capitol Building. Salvador also grabbed the shield of a third Metropolitan Police Officer, pulled it toward himself, but was unsuccessful in prying it free from the officer’s grasp.

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