A former FBI supervisory special agent has been arrested on charges related to the January 6, 2021, US Capitol attack, according to court records.
Jared Wise, who was with the FBI for more than a decade, was arrested this week in Oregon, the records show. He is charged with four federal crimes, including illegally entering and remaining in the Capitol building.
Wise has not yet entered a formal plea.
Investigators say that Wise, who was a special agent and supervisory special agent with the FBI from 2004 through 2017, entered the Capitol on January 6, confronted officers and encouraged other rioters who attacked law enforcement.
When Wise entered the Capitol, according to prosecutors, he “clapped his hands and raised his arms in triumph.” He allegedly left the building through a window about 10 minutes later.
