The 46-year-old Terrell man wore a black helmet with a Marine Corps logo sticker on the back as he assaulted at least seven officers during the Capitol riots, according to an FBI affidavit released by federal prosecutors after his arrest in North Carolina Thursday.

... Stutts is accused of pushing and shoving officers with his hands, a barricade, a battering ram and a bike rack as he helped lead the Capitol breach, according to the arrest warrant affidavit. ...

On Jan. 6, 2021, Stutts sported a "2020 Trump Keep America Great" shirt over a long-sleeved black and gray camouflage print hoodie, according to the affidavit filed by an unnamed FBI special agent.

He also wore an American flag and eagle print neck gaiter and had a backpack on.

After joining a "Stop the Steal" rally on the Ellipse in Washington, Stutts darted through broken fencing and over a wall to join fellow rioters on the west plaza of the Capitol, according to the affidavit.

"He can be seen waiving (sic) other rioters on as he made a beeline for the line of U.S. Capitol Police officers blocking the way to the southwest steps of the Capitol," the agent says in the affidavit.

Stutts wrapped his arms around an officer from behind and shoved an officer from behind with his hands, according to the indictment.

Body-cam and closed-circuit police video also show Stutts assaulting four other officers after more police arrived to try to hold their line with metal bike racks, the FBI agent said.

Pumping His Fists'

Stutts and other rioters later moved a large sign on wheels with a metal frame toward the police line and barricade. "The rioters used the sign as a battering ram against officers attempting to hold the line," the agent said.

Stutts then grabbed the bike rack barricade beneath the sign and pushed it toward the officers, according to the affidavit.

After police took the sign from the rioters, video shows Stutts throwing a water bottle at the police line, the FBI agent said.

Later that afternoon, "Stutts was one of the rioters leading the way" in a final breaking of the police line, the agent said. "After the Plaza was overrun, Stutts could be observed raising his arms and pumping his fists in a celebratory manner as police officers retreated from the oncoming swarm of rioters." ...

Capitol Riot Footage Deals Blow to January 6 Conspiracy Theory

... Newly released video footage of the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol building dealt a blow to a conspiracy theory alleging the involvement of federal agents. ...

Conspiracy theorists pointed to one clip they say proved federal agents were present at the riot. They have argued a video shows one rioter, Kevin Lyons, wearing one of Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hats, while flashing an official government identification badge at a camera.

Skeptics, however, pointed out that Lyons was actually holding a vape -- not a government ID -- pouring cold water on the theory. Several high-profile conservatives pushed the theory, but were forced to backtrack amid criticism.

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah was among the Republicans who backed the theory, retweeting a post on X, formerly Twitter, Saturday night questioning whether Lyons was an "undercover federal agent."

"I can't wait to ask FBI Director Christopher Wray about this at our next oversight hearing. I predict that, as always, his answers will be 97% information-free," Lee wrote in a post on X. ...

Lee's post remained public Monday morning, and he has not addressed criticism that Lyons was actually holding a vape, despite a community note from X fact-checking him on the matter.

"The person is not flashing a badge. He is not a government employee or source. It is Kevin Lyons, who was recently sentenced to 4 years in jail for his actions on January 6th. He called police officers Nazis,'" the community note reads.

Newsweek has reached out to Lee's office for comment via email.

He also faced criticism from former GOP Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and others over the post.

"You're a lawyer, Mike. You're capable of understanding the scores of January 6 verdicts and rulings in our federal courts," she wrote. "You didn't object to electors on January 6 because you knew what Trump was doing was unconstitutional and you know what you're doing now is wrong." ...

He was doing his part in Trump's Fake Electors Insurrection Conspiracy, just as Trump told him to that same day.

And doing it while Trump refused to call off his dogs.

As BillJohnson has informed us repeatedly, all those people were simply good citizens concerned about mail-in ballots.

Excellent knowledge of Mr. Johnson. He quit this site a few weeks after I joined. Did you focus/stalk him for 48 hours, read all of his posts, to form your observation/opinion of him?

No one needed to; BillJohnson's views were very clear:

The election was stolen from Trump, by Democrats who took unrequested mail-in ballots from their Republican families and friends, at such scale it cost Trump the presidency ... despite the fact NO ONE has come forward confirming this theory ... but that's only because all of them, to a person, loves America too much.

He'd repeated this theory ad nauseum; most regular posters could recite it in their sleep.

I really can't stand Liz Cheney's politics and I never cared for her because of that but her continuing comments to these MAGAdiot GOP morons and standing up to them in general makes her seem almost saintly.

(Then the realization comes back she would sell us all out for the right price...)

I agree completely about her politics.

However, for the rest of your comment, I have a different view...

Fmr Rep Cheney has stood up for the Constitution over her political views.

imo, that is important, very important.

Our elected officials should, first and foremost, respect the Oath they took to the Constitution.

She has done that.

It was all FBI and antifa who did 01/06.

That's why Matt Gaetz and the Jewish space laser lady who supports Israel are so hell bent of springing them from the clink.
