Prosecutors say Andrew Take of Texas used the dating app Bumble while in Washington on January 6th. The match asked if he was near the Capitol and said he was there “from the beginning”. He sent some selfies and claimed to have spent 30 minutes in the building.
Within a few days, the match handed him over to the FBI, the prosecutor said in a new court submission on Friday.
Screenshots of their bumble chat show that Take told the match that he was “standing there in peace” at the Capitol. However, prosecutors say he was involved in two violent attacks on the police guarding the building. According to court filings, frontline footage shows Taake using a pepper spray on the police line and later attacking the police with a metal whip.
He has been charged with several federal crimes, including felony assaults on police officers, civil turmoil, and obstruction of parliamentary proceedings. He has not yet entered a plea.
He is currently the second most known parliamentary defendant arrested for unsuccessful online dating. A man from Newyork was charged in April after returning him in a Bumble match.
According to one of the screenshots, according to Taake’s dating profile, he is the owner of a power cleaning company in Houston.
