SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — A third man from Utah faces charges in connection with the violent uprising at the United States' Capitol on Jan. 6.
Brady Knowlton, of St. George, was identified by FBI investigators based on photo and video evidence from the Capitol on that date, according to documents shared with 2News. Investigators sate they determined Knowlton was among the people who broke into the Capitol building and interrupted Congress' certification of electoral votes from the 2020 presidential election.
Court records show screengrabs from video in which a person investigators identified as Knowlton is seen entering the Capitol building and the Senate gallery after senators were evacuated out of concern for their safety.
Investigators determined there was probable cause to charge Knowlton with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and obstruction of justice/Congress.
He is scheduled to appear in federal court in Salt Lake City on Wednesday afternoon.
Knowlton joins two other Utahns who face charges in connection with the Jan. 6 riot: John Sullivan, of Salt Lake City, and Michael Lee Hardin, a former Salt Lake City Police officer from Kaysville.
