FBI Arrests Omaha Man in Connection with Capitol Insurrection

As people swarmed a United States Capitol Police officer, Brandon Straka, 44, of Omaha yelled orders. “Take it away from him. Take the shield!” Straka yells in a video from the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The crowd grabs the officer’s shield as STRAKA yells, “Take it! Take it!” Straka is currently in federal custody.
