Proud Boys member who brawled at Portland protests arrested on Capitol riot charges [View all]

Federal authorities on Wednesday arrested a man who describes himself as the “Sergeant of Arms” of the Seattle chapter of the far-right group Proud Boys, after he was charged in connection with the riot at the U.S. Capitol last month.

Ethan Nordean, 30, who also goes by Rufio Panman, was charged with obstructing or impeding an official proceeding, aiding and abetting, and knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building. The most serious of the charges carries up to 20 years in prison.

He is at least the eighth defendant linked to the male-chauvinist and extremist Proud Boys facing federal charges after thousands of pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress was meeting to certify Joe Biden’s presidential win.

A federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday indicted two of those defendants, Nicholas DeCarlo, of Burleson, Texas, and Nicholas R. Ochs, of Honolulu, Hawaii, following their arrests last month. Among other things, the pair stand accused of scrawling “Murder the media” on a door of the Capitol and stealing a pair of flexible handcuffs that belonged to Capitol police. Ochs is one of the founders of Hawaii’s chapter of the Proud Boys.
