The two men became infamous during the riot for breaking into the Capitol and then writing "Murder the Media" on a doorway. The two men also photographed themselves standing in front of the vandalized doorway giving thumbs-up gestures.

Additionally, the indictment alleges that the two men stole a pair of handcuffs from Capitol police.
