New body-worn camera footage from the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol shows a New Jersey gym owner screaming at officers outside the government building before shoving one and subsequently punching the cop.

In video released by the Department of Justice on Friday, Scott Fairlamb, of Stockholm in Hardyston Township, Sussex County, can be seen on video assaulting a federal law enforcement officer.

Authorities had previously attached photos in charging documents of Fairlamb attacking the officer on the West Front of the Capitol, but the recently released video is the most extensive version showing an enraged Fairlamb punching the officer in the face.
