2 Men Charged With Assault Of Capitol Officer Who Died After Jan 6 Riot

Updated: Mar 17


What Happened:

  • On Sunday, US officials arrested and charged two men for assaulting Capitol Hill officer Brian Sicknick with bear spray.

  • Officials are not sure if the bear spray contributed to the officer's death although one of the theories is that a chemical irritant in the spray may have been ingested by officer Sicknick.

  • The arrested men, George Tanios, 39, and Julian Khater, 32, will appear in federal court on Monday.

  • These are the first arrests made by federal prosecutors that may have a link to any of the five deaths that occurred during or after the Capitol Hill riot.
