Adam Christian Johnson, 36 spotted carrying Speaker's lectern arrested in Florida
A man who was pictured holding the lectern of Speaker Nancy Pelosi earlier this week during the Capitol riot has been arrested.
The man, identified as Adam Christian Johnson, 36, was taken to a local jail in Pinellas County, Fla., on Friday night and is being held on a federal warrant, the Miami Herald reported.
After the photograph of him holding the lectern in the Capitol rotunda went viral, Johnson was named on social media, according to local media sources.
He also made several social media posts sharing that he was staying in Washington, D.C., just before the riot and included derogatory comments about the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the Miami Herald.
The Miami Herald reported that Johnson is a stay-at-home-dad of five and lives with his wife in Parrish. He is currently awaiting trial, according to Pinellas County Sheriff's Office records.
