Cary, NC (WNCN) – A 19-year-old man from North Carolina was accused of attacking the US Capitol on January 6 this week with a can of bear spray.

Cary’s Aidan Billiards have been charged with physical violence in restricted buildings and grounds, civilian confusion, and attacking, resisting, and sabotaging certain officers with dangerous weapons. He was arrested in Raleigh on Monday and first appeared in federal court.

Federal officials said billiards were found in video spray law enforcement officers using chemical stimulants believed to be “bear sprays.” According to Justice Department officials, the mob used the spray to incapacitate police officers.

Billiards have also been accused of using bats to break the windows of the Capitol. He then entered the Senate room through a broken window, federal officials said.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has shown that the FBI, who had undergone basic training at the Luckland Air Force Base near San Antonio, interviewed billiards in August.

Billiards told agents that he was in the Capitol that day, but only participated in legitimate activities. After the agent showed his “apparent participation” billiard video, the 19-year-old said, “This is where I’m on my vacation.”

Mobile phones connected to billiards were also tracked in the Capitol on January 6th. Court documents show.

After the FBI spoke to Texas billiards, he left the Air Force and returned to Cary.

“He was always like a good boy. It’s quiet,” said Carrie’s resident Michelle Hopkins, who played billiards. Accused of attacking the Parliament building When Congress meets to prove victory in President Joe Biden’s election in the 2020 elections.

“It’s just amazing,” she said. “I don’t even know what to say.”

Hopkins also said it’s strange that billiards went out for basic training to come back a few months later, but she didn’t know why until recently.

“We didn’t ask a question,” she said. “We all make mistakes, but it’s like you have to learn.”

The FBI used a photo from Billiard’s mother’s Facebook page to identify a 19-year-old who wore the same gray sweatshirt as “Harvard” on her chest on January 6.

The agent also interviewed his mother, who admitted to finding a canister that matched the “bear spray” in the photo, behind the billiard car. According to federal documents, she disposed of it after billiards found it on the ground outside the Capitol and told her it was okay to throw it away.

In the 10 months since January 6, more than 675 people have been arrested in almost every 50 states for crimes related to the US Capitol breach. This includes more than 210 people charged with assault or obstruction of law enforcement.
