Texas man charged for Capitol riot involvement, outed by person who knew him for 20 years

The ongoing investigation into the events that took place on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol and the people involved in those events was predicted to be one of the largest and most intensive federal investigations in modern history.

While a bulk of the protesters who showed up that day were peaceful, those in the group that split off and attacked the Capitol building are still being identified and charged. According to Law and Crime, the latest is a 41-year-old man by the name of Kerry Wayne Persick, who was identified to authorities by someone who has known him for 20 years. 

Persick reportedly appeared in a number of photographs and video clips of the rioting action that took place on that day, both inside the Capitol building and outside, as he sported a bright red “Make America Great Again” hat.

Persick, who hails from Texas, was outed by the person close to him through the use of an online tip portal managed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Video footage and several pictures of Persick were shown to the anonymous tipster, who confirmed that it was, in fact, Persick in the footage.

Hammering the final investigative nail into confirming Persick’s involvement in the Capitol riots were his AT&T phone records, which suggested Persick “utilized a cell site tower consistent with providing service to a geographic area that included the interior of the United States Capitol building.”

According to filed charging documents, Persick is facing a long list of serious federal charges, including “knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building without lawful authority, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building, violent entry, and demonstrating in a Capitol building.”

He’ll join roughly 440 others who have already been charged, with over 100 of them charged with especially serious crimes such as assaulting or impeding federal police officers.

Notably, according to Fox 4 News, Persick is the 23rd individual from the North Texas area to be charged for taking part in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.

  1. What capital riots? The sit-in was peaceful. This guy may be guilty but with fascists in control of the government, he may not be too. Most people held are political prisoners plain and simple.

  2. But, of course, those fine updlstanding members of ANTIFA and BLM committing real crimes shouldn’t be pestered by silly things like the law.

  3. I have written to our AG Merrick Garland and advised him that holding people in solitary confinement is considered illegal and a war crime due to the mental problems that can occur. Also,having your captors beat the prisoners without charging them might be considered Nazi like tactics. I put the seed
    of his culpability and probable imprisonment very likely if the Republicans take control again. He has to have some blood on his very weak little hands.

  4. HOW DO WE KNOW THAT HAT WAS A REPUBLICAN MY BET IT WAS ANTIFA DRESSED IN A HAT TO LOOK LIKE A TRUMP SUPPORTER!!!

  5. Wearing a RED Trump hat is hardly proof Trump was in any way involved in the actions of Jan 6.

  6. If this guy hurt someone or was violent with a cop he is where he belongs.

    It’s his 20-year-old friend that turned him in should be locked up.

    Some friend he turned out to be.

  7. They need to investigate the riots and unrest that antifa and black lives matter have caused!!!!!!!!

  8. They are trying to shut the Trump supporters up. They are trying to scare any body that dares to practice their first amendment right.

  9. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    The democrats are not going to stop this B.S investigation at the capital building on Jan. 6th. This was not and insurrection , it was citizens of this country letting the congress members know that they screwed up in our government. All these people are the voters of this country and they do have the right to express their options in this country. Our 1st amendment gives the people of this country that right. But the damn democrats don’t want the people of this country to have any rights at all. So lets see if this site will let my commit show to other citizens of this country.

  10. F**k the FBI. F**k Biden and Harris. F**k Nancy Pelosi and all the corrupt crooked communist democrat party who are trying to silence the voices and taking the freedoms away from the American people. The FBI, the democrat party, the rinos and most of the judicial system in this country are together trying and looks like succeeding in overthrowing our American republic and our system of government.

  11. Unless they have film of him completing violence, I would say he should be able to present a very good defense for just being there. It is ludicrous that all of these people are being tracked down like animals while the rioters, looters, and property destroyers in Portland, Seattle and MPLS are let go without even being charged with their crimes? What the hell ever happened to our equal justice system? Let’s get it back.

  12. Don’t our federal agencies have more important things to do, like illegal immigrants, drug cartels, Hunter Biden, etc. than trying to find every person that entered the capitol on Jan. 6, who by the way were let in by the security guards.
