Pinellas men carried sledgehammer, pepper spray in Jan. 6 Capitol riot, indictment says

Zachary Johnson of St. Petersburg and Dion Rajewski of Largo are the latest Floridians accused of crimes related to the Capitol siege.

Add two more to the list of Floridians charged with participating in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Zachary Johnson, 33, of St. Petersburg, and Dion Rajewski, 61, of Largo, are accused in a federal indictment of entering the Capitol that day and engaging in disorderly conduct as a mob disrupted the congressional certification of the 2020 election results.

The indictment is light on details, but it states that both men carried pepper spray and that Johnson sprayed an officer with it. Johnson is also alleged to have carried a sledgehammer, according to the indictment.

The pair were arrested Thursday after the indictment was unsealed. Altogether, Johnson faces six criminal charges, including assaulting, resisting or impeding an officer. Rajewski is accused of five federal crimes. Both men are alleged to have engaged in physical violence at the Capitol, according to the indictment.
