This dipshit got caught because he wore his insurrection beanie in his Instagram profile picture…
Officials from the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia said Grady Douglas Owens was in custody in Orlando and appeared before a judge Thursday at 3 p.m. Owens studies music production at Full Sail and lives at an apartment complex in Winter Park.
Owens will remain in federal custody overnight. The judge postponed his bond hearing to Friday at 10 a.m.
According to the report, Owens was captured on body camera video as part of a group of rioters who clashed with police outside the Capitol. During the altercation, Owens used a black skateboard with WhiteFang written on it to hit Metropolitan Police Department Officer Christopher Boyle on the head, records show.
Authorities said Boyle suffered a concussion and an injury to his right pinky finger.
Mommy and Daddy are supposedly hiring an attorney for their boy…
The charges Grady Douglas Owens is facing are among the more serious of anyone arrested in Central Florida in connection with the Capitol riots.
Owens, a Full Sail University student, was wearing shorts and a t-shirt when he appeared in court Thursday afternoon. He told the judge he believes his parents are trying to hire him an attorney.
Prosecutors said Owens is facing four charges and three of them are felonies. The most serious has to do with assaulting or resisting an officer while using a deadly weapon and inflicting bodily harm.
Because it is a violent felony, prosecutors asked the judge to hold Owens without bond and the judge agreed.

According to an affidavit released Thursday afternoon, Owens was captured on body camera video slamming a skateboard over the head of a D.C. Metropolitan Police officer, who suffered a concussion and “an injury on his right pinky finger.”
Investigators said he was later identified with the help of an image search using a photo posted by @SeditionHunters, a Twitter account used to help track down suspects in the attempted insurrection at the Capitol. The image led to a public Instagram account identifying Owens as an Orlando-based music producer and instrumentalist.
Authorities later tracked down Owens using a license plate reader that monitored him to a Winter Park apartment complex and a parking lot at Full Sail University, where a faculty member confirmed Owens’ identity, the affidavit said.
The work of Sedition Hunters was instrumental in identifying Owens…
An image from another officer’s body-worn camera of the suspected attacker was made public.
“The unknown subject is listed in the FBI Wanted Poster as Subject 109,” the report said.
An agent spotted the wanted poster and other images of the same person on a Twitter account called @SeditionHunters, which is run by a person who is helping officials identify Capitol attack suspects.
An online search of a clearer picture of the suspect from Sedition Hunters led investigators to an Instagram profile for Grady Owens and a photo of the suspect wearing a stocking cap.
It appeared to be the same cap worn by Subject 109.
He’s facing up to 36 years…
A Florida college student was arrested Thursday for striking a police officer in the head with a skateboard during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, leaving him with a concussion, the FBI said in an affidavit. Grady Douglas Owens, a student at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, faces up to 36 years behind bars if convicted of the charges against him, which include assaulting a law enforcement officer with a deadly weapon and inflicting bodily injury, and violent entry of the Capitol building, among other things. Owens, who is due to appear in court on Friday for a bond hearing, was caught on body cam footage striking a D.C. Metropolitan Police officer in the head with a skateboard bearing the phrase “White Fang.” Federal investigators later tracked him down with the help of social media, and an employee of Full Sail University positively identified him as the man seen in the footage.
Separately, another Florida man was arrested Thursday in connection with the riot. William Rogan Reid is charged with unlawfully entering the Capitol building and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Court documents say the FBI received a tip about Reid’s participation in the riots from someone who spotted a video he posted on social media of the attempted insurrection. According to the complaint, investigators then discovered a flurry of taunts directed at law enforcement on Reid’s Instagram account, including, “Hi, Feds” and “I’LL FUCKIN DO IT AGAIN.”
The FBI continues to seek the public’s assistance in identifying individuals who participated in unlawful conduct during the Capitol Insurrection.
