Two men accused of being among a mob of Donald Trump supporters that stormed the nation's Capitol - one wearing a horned, fur hat and the other carrying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's lectern - have been charged over the mayhem that left five people dead.
The arrests come as more images emerge showing just how violent the riots were: a bloodied officer crushed in a doorway screaming; another tumbling over a railing into the crowd below after being body-slammed from behind; members of the media being shoved and punched.
Jacob Chansley, from Arizona, who was seen in photos and videos with a painted face and wearing the horned headdress, was taken into custody Saturday and charged with counts that include violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
Chansley, who had become a staple in his costume at pro-Trump protests across the country, is among dozens of people arrested in the wake of the Capitol invasion by a mob of enraged Trump supporters.
The rioters took over the House and Senate chambers, smashed windows, and forced lawmakers to halt their voting to affirm President-elect Joe Biden's victory and go into hiding for hours.
A man accused of making off with Pelosi's lectern during the chaos has been arrested on a federal warrant and is being held without bail in Pinellas County, Florida.
Adam Johnson, 36, of Parrish, Florida, was charged with theft, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
The married father of five was quickly identified on social media by local residents .
By Saturday, prosecutors had filed 17 cases in federal district court and 40 others in the District of Columbia Superior Court for a variety of offences ranging from assaulting police officers to entering restricted areas of the US Capitol, stealing federal property and threatening lawmakers.
Prosecutors said additional cases remained under seal, dozens of other people were being sought by federal agents and the US attorney in Washington vowed Friday that "all options were on the table" for charges, including possibly sedition.
Other noted faces from the Capitol storming, were Doug Jensen, the white man seen pursuing a black officer up a flight of stairs, and Richard Barnett the man photgraphed with his boots on Pelosi's desk. Both have charged and are in custody.
Meanwhile, West Virginia state politician Derrick Evans who posted videos online showing himself pushing his way inside the Capitol, was arrested Friday by the FBI at his home and charged with entering restricted federal property.
Evans, has submitted a letter of resignation to the West Virginia Governor Jim Justice and apologised for his actions.
