Here are the Houston-area residents charged in connection to Jan. 6 Capitol riot

At least a dozen Houston-area residents have been charged for their alleged roles in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot as of June 2022, including a former HPD officer.

HOUSTON — January 6, 2021 is a day Americans will never forget. 

Hundreds of people stormed the nation’s Capitol to demand the results of the 2020 election be overturned. 

Five people died, including a Capitol police officer. 

Among those in the angry crowd were people from all over the nation, including more than 700 people who would later be arrested, including some from the Houston area.

Texas has been one of the states with the highest number of alleged Capitol rioters.
