PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Battle Ground resident was arrested for his alleged role in the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol in Washington, DC.

Jeremy Grace is accused of illegal entering, disorderly conduct and demonstrating inside the restricted building.

The FBI tweeted Jeremy Grace was arrested in Molalla on Wednesday and made his first appearance before a federal magistrate in the afternoon.

Jeremy Grace and his father Jeffrey are seen in photos at the riot. Jeffery is seen in the background of the photo of a man stealing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s lectern.

The Department of Justice said video found on Jeffrey’s phone shows both of them outside the US Capitol repeatedly saying the building was “our house.”

Jeremy Grace said he didn’t go inside the Capitol.

Jeffrey Grace was arrested in February and charged in connection with the deadly US Capitol insurrection. Neither have entered pleas to the charges.
