Mar. 18—A man has been arrested in Louisville in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, the FBI announced Thursday morning.

Michael Orangias, 36, was charged with knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, according to the FBI's Louisville office.

Orangias is being held in federal custody and was set to have his first court appearance Thursday.

Details of the allegations against Orangias were not immediately released.

Orangias is the latest of more than 10 people with Kentucky ties to be charged in connection with the events at the U.S. Capitol.

Kentuckians charged have faced a variety of accusations, including one who is accused of breaking a window moments before a woman was fatally shot by police and another who is accused of spraying mace at a police officer. Another man allegedly dragged an officer down stairs, according to the FBI. Others have been charged for participating in the riot and entering the U.S. Capitol building.

Hundreds across the country also face charges in connection with the riot, and the FBI continues to ask the public for help identifying others who stormed the building.
