Federal prosecutors are arguing that a North Carolina man charged in connection with the January 6 Capitol attack should await trial in jail because he allegedly instigated a bar fight after a woman rejected him, reported CBS News' Scott MacFarlane on Thursday. 35-year-old Alan Michael St. Onge, 35, of Brevard, was initially arrested over the summer, reported WLOS. He was charged with felony civil disorder, trespassing, disorderly conduct, and impeding passage through Capitol grounds. "Publicly available video shows St. Onge pushing against the barricades along with other rioters shortly before the police line on the east plaza was overrun," a DOJ press statement said at the time of his arrest.
