A Georgia man was arrested Wednesday for crimes related to the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.
Kevin Douglas Creek, 46, of Alpharetta, is charged with federal offenses that include assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers; physical violence on Capitol grounds; and obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, among other charges.
Creek made his initial court appearance in the Northern District of Georgia on Wednesday.
According to court documents, Creek was captured on body-worn camera footage reportedly assaulting multiple law enforcement officers. As depicted in the footage, Creek allegedly struck an officer and kicked another a minute later. Both officers were uniformed and carrying out official duties.
Creek is reported to have traveled to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 5, carried mace and a boot knife at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, and then returned home on Jan. 7, according to court documents.
The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Department of Justice National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section. The investigation remains ongoing.
A Locust Grove man was also arrested April 1 for his reported participation in the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.
Jack Wade Whitton, 30, will remain in jail until his trial, United States District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled Tuesday.
Whitton is charged with entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon, engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon, and an act of physical violence in the Capitol grounds or buildings.
Whitton was one of five men named in a superseding indictment and charged with assaulting Metropolitan Police Department officers and also reportedly committing other crimes on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol.
