The FBI arrested a California man after receiving a tip of his involvement in the January 6 Capitol riot from a church prayer group member.
Glenn Allen Brooks “boasted of his active participation” in the riot and “sent photos of his attendance” to a text chat group full of church prayer members, a criminal complaint says.
A member of the group — who was not identified in the complaint — provided that information to the FBI, leading to Brooks’ arrest on Thursday.
Brooks on the day of the riot texted the group “a selfie photo of himself inside the Capitol,” the complaint, dated July 27, says. Weeks later, the unnamed group member passed it along to officials investigating the insurrection.
