WYOMING — Federal court filings show that a Wyoming man has been charged with entering the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Andrew Galloway of Cody, Wyoming, faces four charges in Washington, including entering the Capitol, demonstrating in a capitol building and disorderly conduct. Court records indicate that he has entered a not guilty plea.
According to the Casper Star-Tribune, an affidavit in the case includes screenshots from a since-deleted TikTok, Youtube videos and additional images from Jan. 6, which appear to show Galloway wearing a knit hat and scarf with “TRUMP” written on them in white letters.
The affidavit states that when FBI officers interviewed Galloway at his home outside of Cody, he identified himself in the videos and did not deny that he attended the Jan. 6 riot.
The FBI reportedly received a tip about Galloway’s participation and identified him in surveillance footage from Jan. 6, 2021. His Wyoming driver’s license was also used by investigators to match his image to the surveillance footage.
According to court documents, Galloway could be seen in the footage wearing the Trump hat, entering the Capitol twice through breached windows.
One video obtained by investigators shows Galloway saying, “Yeah, that was us today; no that wasn’t Antifa,” court documents state.
Cell phone data from Galloway’s number also reportedly confirmed his presence in the area on Jan. 6, authorities say.
However, according to court documents, Galloway told investigators that while he was outside the Capitol, he did not enter the federal building.
Court filings show that Galloway was arrested in Nashville, Tennessee, on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022, but was released from custody this week on a personal recognizance bond, filings state. This means he won’t have to pay bond unless he fails to show up for court appearances.
A hearing for Galloway’s case has been set for Feb. 22 in D.C.
