It has been revealed that Jan. 6 participant Ray Epps was charged on Tuesday in connection to the Capitol riot of January 6.

"Epps is charged with one misdemeanor count, disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds. He was charged by information, which suggests that he plans to enter a plea deal," NBC reports.

Epps has become an infamous figure after he told people at the Capitol in the lead-up to the January 6 riot that "We need to go into the Capitol" in addition to later stating over text that he was among those who had "orchestrated" the event. He has now been charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly or disruptive conduct on restricted grounds, and is likely to take a plea deal, according to NBC. 



In the recent past, Epps was accused of lying about his whereabouts at the Capitol on that fateful day. Since there were no official reported charges up until Sept. 19, whereas some other Jan. 6 defendants were incurring massive prison sentences, many speculated that Epps had struck some type of deal with the federal government and would often question if he may even be an agent of sorts. 

The criminal information states that Epps "did knowingly, and with intent to impede and disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, engage in disorderly and disruptive conduct in and within such proximity to, a restricted building and grounds—that is, any posted, cordoned-off, and otherwise restricted area within the United States Capitol and its grounds, where the Vice President was and would be temporarily visiting—when and so that such conduct did in fact impede and disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business and official functions, and attempted and conspired to do so."

Epps said during an interview with the January 6 committee last year that he had embarked on a trip to Washington, DC in order to show his support for former President Trump. 

He charges that 'conspiracy theories' have ruined his life, and said that he "never intended to break the law."

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
