A 10th Colorado man has been arrested and charged in connection with the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Logan Grover, of Erie, was arrested on Wednesday and released on a $10,000 bond. Grover is accused of disruptive conduct in a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and demonstrating in a Capitol building. 

Federal court documents include images of Grover among the crowd of rioters that came from protesters’ phones as well as videos posted on social media sites, including Parler. Body camera footage from law enforcement officers also captured shots of Grover inside the U.S. Capitol building, according to Grover’s arrest warrant.

While investigating the riot, the Federal Bureau of Investigation received multiple tips of Grover’s intention to participate, documents say. The day after the riot, Grover posted on his Facebook page and wrote about his involvement, according to a screenshot of the post included in his arrest warrant. 

“I’m not sure what to do at a rally & protest, it’s my first of both,” Grover wrote in the Facebook post.

At least nine other men from Colorado have been arrested in connection with the riot.
