Warrant issued for arrest of far-right streamer Tim 'Baked Alaska' Gionet after he violates release conditions, fails to show in court

...A Scottsdale judge issued a warrant for the arrest Thursday of far-right social media personality Tim "Baked Alaska" Gionet after he said Gionet violated conditions of his release by leaving the state last week to go to Washington, where he apparently livestreamed the U.S. Capitol riot.

Gionet already was facing misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct and criminal trespass in Scottsdale City Court after police allege he refused to leave a Scottsdale bar and then pepper sprayed an employee. He had been released in that case with the agreement he not leave the state without the court's permission.

Judge James Blake was not pleased that the 33-year-old Gionet chose to skip his court hearing without explanation, and even Gionet's attorney, Zach Thornley, was unable to reach his client on the phone during the court hearing. ...

Statement of facts (PDF)


...Based on information I have reviewed, I estimate that between 2:00 p.m., and no later than 4:00 p.m., Anthime Joseph Gionet, also known as "Baked Alaska" on social media platforms entered the United States Capitol without authorization to do so. While inside the Capitol Building, the defendant conducted an approximately 27-minute long livestream video on the "DLive" platform, noting that he was "documenting" the event. The video was later captured and posted to YouTube and Twitter, where your affiant viewed it.

In the video, the defendant and the individuals he is with be can seen in the United States Capitol Building and can be heard chanting, "Patriots are in control," "whose house? Our house," and "traitors, traitors, traitors ... ." The defendant can be heard remarking, "1776 baby," "I won't leave guys, don't worry." At the 2:52 minute mark in the YouTube video the defendant, who is livestreaming the event from his device, turns the phone around to show his face and is clearly identifiable. The defendant is a known social media personality and is thus recognizable. At the 7:06 mark on the YouTube video the defendant approaches an exterior window and is offered a hand to exit the Capitol building. The defendant remarks "I'm staying" and remains in the building. At approximately the 9:40 mark in the YouTube video the defendant can be heard remarking "We are in the Capitol Building, 1776 will commence again." At approximately the 12:40 mark in the YouTube video the defendant can be heard remarking "Unleash the Kraken, let's go." The defendant is repeatedly heard encouraging other protestors not to leave.

At the 15:54 mark in the YouTube video the defendant enters an office in the Capitol and interviews others. At approximately the 17:45 mark on the YouTube video the defendant picks up a telephone and acts out a purported phone call with the United States Senate personnel. At approximately the 18:05 mark in the YouTube video the defendant shouts, "America First is inevitable. f**k Globalists, let's go!" At approximately the 21:10 mark in the YouTube video the defendant remarks "Occupy the Capitol let's go. We ain't leaving this bitch." At approximately the 19:00 mark in the YouTube video the defendant enters another office. The defendant sits on a couch and places his feet on a table. The defendant encourages others not to break anything.

At approximately the 25:26 mark in the YouTube video law enforcement officers ask the defendant to move, at which time, he identifies himself to them as a member of the "media," and asks where he should go. At approximately the 26:35 mark in the YouTube video the defendant audibly accuses law enforcement of shoving him; no shoving can be seen on the video. He remarks to the law enforcement officer, "You're a f**king oathbreaker you piece of ----," "f**k you" approximately four times, and, "you broke your oath to the constitution." The defendant exits the Capitol at approximately the 26:55 mark on the YouTube video.

Based on the foregoing, your affiant submits that there is probable cause to believe that the Anthime Joseph Gionet violated 18 U.S.C. 1752(a)(1), which makes it a crime to knowingly enter or remain in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so....

There is a theory that he was working as a plant, because so many people got ID'd and busted due to his streaming.

"There is a theory that he was working as a plant, "

Not much smarter than one either. Obviously.

Now he gets to plant his butt in a prison cell.

And since he is a journalist he can document the conditions there.

These dorks are all finding out that their porcine leader's June, 2020 executive order outlining 10-year prison sentences for them is still in effect, and will probably be kept in place by the Diamond Joe Crime Buster Squad. Oh, the irony, to break into the US Capitol on the instruction of their god, only to have that same god sentence them to a bit in some federal pen.

These clowns are all hoping that they will get pardoned tomorrow. Not having contributed to some Trump-related shakedown artist, they will wake up on January 21 crying...
