"We have confirmed through a source within FCI Oakdale prison that Owen is doing well and remains in good spirits," Shroyer's media team posted on an account operated on his behalf. "With that said, unfortunately he is being held in solitary confinement until Monday 10/30 per the facility’s (absurd/pathetic) covid intake protocol."
Shroyer has been sent to federal prison despite not entering the US Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021.
Shortly before being forced to turn himself in, Shroyer posted a video message that he encouraged his viewers to share far and wide.
"That year 1776 is extremely important not just because it was the founding year of our country, but the US government is arguing that it's illegal for me to say 1776 in Washington, DC," he explained.
"Don't believe me? Check the US government sentencing memo for yourself. They said that me chanting '1776' in Washington, DC is worthy of 60 days in prison."
Shroyer's 60-day prison sentence was ordered by US District Judge Timothy Kelly, who had also handed down Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio's 22-year prison sentence.
Prosecutors had attempted to get Shroyer locked up for double the amount of time he ultimately received. They claimed he had "spread election disinformation paired with violent rhetoric" to people prior to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
"Shroyer did not step foot inside the Capitol, he did not need to; many of those who listened to him did instead," the prosecutors previously wrote. "In the aftermath, he has blamed 'Antifa' and told his followers: 'We should have been proud of what happened.'"
