The FBI arrested a Keller man on Wednesday and accused him of drinking a beer while he stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Thomas Paul Conover was arrested on two misdemeanor counts of entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct.
Conover appeared before a federal magistrate in Fort Worth after his arrest.
According to the criminal complaint, Conover bragged on Facebook posts about going inside the Capitol during the riot.
