WASHINGTON D.C. — A Naples man was arrested for being among a group of protestors who pushed past police and entered the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6.

D.C. court documents say Michael Jerrett Amos, 38, of Naples, is facing charges of unlawful entry.

Amos is being represented by D.C. lawyer Carl Messine, and today entered a plea of not guilty. His next court date is set for June 10.

Amos was allegedly part of a large group that caused the Capitol to go on lockdown, disrupting the count of electoral votes that would officially certify Joe Biden as President-elect.

After the building was cleared, Congress reconvened and finalized the process about six hours later.
