A 56-year-old man wearing the Camp Auschwitz garb at the Capitol riot in Washington D.C. last week was arrested in Hampton Roads.
Then, hours later he was released.
At the virtual federal court hearing in Norfolk on Wednesday, Robert Keith Packer, 56, was released on a “personal recognizance bond” after a federal prosecutor noted the government would not detain Packer, according to the Associated Press.
“One of the conditions of his release includes barring Packer from visiting Washington unless it’s for a court appearance,” according to the AP article.
Packer plans to hire his own lawyer.
The U.S. Marshals Service Norfolk office arrested Packer in Newport News on Wednesday morning, according to the Western Tidewater Regional Jail inmate search.
Packer was taken to the WTRJ and served federal arrest warrants charging him with “violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds” and “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building/grounds without lawful authority,” according to an arrest warrant filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
According to court records, the FBI issued the warrant Tuesday and Packer was arrested Wednesday.
