The man photographed carrying a confederate flag through the Capitol on January 6 was indicted on five additional counts by a grand jury on Thursday, CNBC reported.

Kevin Seefried and his son Hunter Seefried were arrested a few days after the Capitol riot and indicted on three counts including violent entry, entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct.

The father and son were both hit with five additional counts on Thursday: Obstruction of an official proceeding and aiding and abetting; entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.

Hunter Seefried also faces charges of entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with physical violence against property; destruction of government property; and act of physical violence in the Capitol grounds or buildings.

CNBC reported:

Kevin Seefried, who was photographed carrying a Confederate flag in the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riots in Washington, has been indicted by a grand jury on five counts related to obstruction, entering restricted property and disorderly conduct.

Seefried’s son, Hunter Seefried, was also indicted. The younger Seefried faces the same five counts as his father in addition to three charges related to destruction of government property and violence on Capitol grounds.

An affidavit signed by FBI Special Agent Katherine Pattillo filed in connection with the case in January said that authorities reviewed video footage allegedly showing the Seefrieds entering the Capitol via a broken window.

The two were identified, according to the affidavit, after a co-worker of Hunter Seefried told the FBI that Hunter had “bragged about being in the Capitol with his father on January 6, 2021.”

Pattillo also wrote that she reviewed footage posted to Twitter that allegedly shows Hunter Seefried “punching out glass in a window in the Capitol complex after people adjacent to him in the crowd broke it with a wooden 2 x 4.”
