William Tryon

William Tryon traveled with three friends from the Albany, NY area to attend the Stop the Steal rally. He allegedly spoke to a reporter outside of the Capitol after he and others in the crowd were pepper sprayed by police.

“All we want to do is enter, and tell our representatives we want our country back,” he said.

He supposedly led a group in singing “We’re Not Gonna Take It” by Twisted Sister. Inside the building, he filmed and took photos of the events inside. There is no evidence he acted violently inside the building.

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