COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man was arrested and accused of entering the U.S. Capitol after family members and a former coworker identified him in footage captured during the deadly insurrection last month.

Derek Jancart, 39, of Columbus is the ninth Ohioan to be accused of joining a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters as they smashed their way into the U.S. Capitol building.

Five people, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer, died in the Jan. 6 assault.

Dozens of people have been arrested in the attack, which temporarily halted congressional business to confirm Joe Biden as president.
