A New Jersey gym owner and former ultimate fighter who got attention for defying the COVID lockdown was arrested for his role in the Capitol riot on Friday after several people identified him to the FBI, according to court papers.

Scott Kevin Fairlamb of Stockholm, N.J., who fought under the name “Wildman,” was charged in federal court in Washington, D.C., with assaulting a federal officer and carrying a dangerous weapon, according to documents.

The arrest affidavit described contacts from four concerned citizens who told the FBI that Fairlamb was at the Capitol that day and posted videos of himself on Facebook that he later deleted.
