Jeffrey McKellop, a man identified as a longtime Army Special Forces soldier and now a current military contractor has now been charged for assaulting four police officers on duty at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, including spearing one in the face with a flagpole. Jeffrey McKellop’s actions caused a laceration to an officer’s face.

McKellop was arrested on Wednesday, March 17.

He can be seen in videos and pictures, as well as in footage from police-worn body cameras. He was present among the earliest waves of rioters who came to confront police at the Capitol that day.

McKellop is seen picking up “a flagpole from the ground” and “shov[ing] it into the face” of a DC police officer before throwing the flagpole at another officer, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday.
