QAnon supporter drove 800 miles to DC for March 4 and was 'willing to die' to realize his dreams

Ian Alan Olson traveled to DC ahead of QAnon's fake 'inauguration' date on March 4. He told Capitol police that he had "big" plans and was "not afraid to die," according to a criminal complaint. Two weeks later, Olson was arrested by the FBI for shooting paintballs at active servicemen.

An armed QAnon devotee drove 800 miles from Wisconsin to Washington, DC, and had plans to do something "crazy stupid," according to a criminal complaint first reported on by the Daily Beast.

Ian Alan Olson was in DC ahead of March 4 - a highly anticipated date for QAnon followers. Some believers of the discredited conspiracy thought that the day would result in former President Donald Trump's reinstatement and the beginning of "The Storm."

The day before this failed fantasy date, Olson told a member of the National Guard that he was "maybe going to do something crazy stupid tomorrow."

Shortly after, Olson was approached by Capitol police. He told the police officer that he wanted to "test the National Guard tomorrow to see if they were loyal to the people or to the President," according to the complaint.

Not being shot would demonstrate the National Guard's loyalty to "the people," Olson explained to the cop.

Olson did not reveal any specific details of his plans but said that his actions would "be big," led by God and that he was "willing to die to fulfill his mission." His intended actions would also "be bigger" than jumping the Capitol's fences, the complaint alleges he said.

The QAnon devotee shared how he would wear ceramic armor on his back to protect him from bullets but would not wear armor on his front because he was "not afraid to die." He added that "things can only be resolved by the barrel end of a gun," according to the complaint.

On March 15, Olson was arrested after threatening to shoot Army reservists with an AR-15-style paintball gun.
