Retired co who threw fire extinguisher is arrested

A man wanted by the FBI for allegedly throwing a fire extinguisher that hit three Capitol police officers in last week's deadly Washington, D.C., riot has been charged in federal court.

ABCNY7, CNN and WUSA9 report that Robert Sanford, 55, a retired firefighter from Chester, Pennsylvania, was arrested Thursday morning and charged with four federal charges, including knowingly entering a restricted building, disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, civil disorder and assaulting officers engaging in their official duties.

Sanford was allegedly seen on video throwing a "red object, which appears to be a fire extinguisher" at a number of Capitol police officers at the Jan. 6 insurrection, according to court documents, CNN reports. The fire extinguisher bounced off the head of one officer before hitting two additional officers. (This was a separate incident from the one in which Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick was killed, though Sicknick was also allegedly struck in the head with a fire extinguisher during the siege.)
