A member of the far-right Proud Boys group — and husband of an Orange County deputy sheriff — was arrested on federal charges Tuesday, accused of illegally entering the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot that left five people dead.
An affidavit said 30-year-old Arthur Jackman, who at one point reportedly served as vice president of the Central Florida Proud Boys, was photographed among various other Proud Boys members outside and inside the Capitol during the attempted insurrection.
Jackman faces charges of obstructing official proceedings before Congress and entering restricted grounds to impede or obstruct government business, records show. He faces up to 11 years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, if convicted.
He arrived at an afternoon hearing at the federal courthouse in downtown Orlando wearing a shirt that said “Proud Boys Did Nothing Wrong.” He was later released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.
- Jackman is also barred from owning or possessing guns while he faces trial, including those of his wife, Orange County Deputy Sarah Jackman
