A retired Chester, PA firefighter has been arrested in connection to the U.S. Capitol riots according to officials. Robert Sanford is facing three felony charges of including assaulting a police officer after being identified as someone who threw a fire extinguisher as rioters stormed the building.
This incident is separate from the one that left a police officer dead.
During a search of Sanford’s home, police found “Proud Boys” materials, the far-right extremist group that supports Donald Trump. Sanford was ordered to stay in jail pending trial with the judge saying he is a “danger to the community” and to our “democracy and our legislators”
