FBI: Arrested Duluth man took selfie during Capitol riot


The Federal Bureau of Investigations has arrested another metro Atlanta man in connection with the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

Authorities arrested Duluth resident Jonathan Laurens Wednesday.

According to court documents, the FBI received multiple tips from people saying that 38-year-old Laurens posted photos from inside the Capitol on his Facebook page.

The FBI says that Laurens admitted to being at the Capitol on Facebook, posting comments including "we got into the capitol (sic), walked around, chanted some slogans and stuff. A few bad apples were trying to break windows and kick on doors."

Authorities also allege that Laurens took a selfie in front of a portrait of George Washington in the Capitol's Rayburn Reception Room.
