A 26-year-old Maryland man photographed inside the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection - who was wearing his work badge and then fired from his job - has surrendered on federal charges.
Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police confirmed that Nicholas Rodean turned himself in at the 2nd District precinct station this morning.
Pictures of Rodean holding a Trump flag and standing next to Jacob Chansley, a prominent figure in the QAnon conspiracy movement, went viral. Rodean was wearing his work badge from his job at a Frederick marketing firm. The firm then fired him.
The exact charges against Rodean were not immediately clear. Attempts to reach him prior to his surrender were unsuccessful.
Several Marylanders have been charged so far in connection with the events of Jan. 6.
