Authorities have arrested a Connecticut man they say was part of the violent pro-Trump mob that attacked the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

Jeremy K. Baouche, a 24-year-old New London man, is an engineer at General Dynamics Electric Boat in Groton. Authorities said he used his company computer to search for information about guns and the layout of the Capitol building. One video seems to show the man chanting through a megaphone inside the Capitol.

He appeared before a federal judge in New Haven this week and was released on $100,000 bail.

Davis Dunavin loves telling stories, whether on the radio or around the campfire. He started in Missouri and ended up in Connecticut, which, he'd like to point out, is the same geographic trajectory taken by Mark Twain.
