WASHINGTON (KDVR) — A grand jury has indicted two-time Olympic gold medalist Klete Keller on seven charges from his participation in the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6.

A federal arrest warrant contains pictures that investigators said shows Keller with a mob of people inside the Capitol on Jan. 6.

The charges include obstructing law enforcement engaged in official duties incident to civil disorder, knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

Video of the insurrection appears to show a bearded, 6-foot-6-inch Keller inside the Capitol building. He appears to be wearing an Olympic team jacket with “USA” printed on the back and sleeves.

According to the New York Times, several former teammates and coaches recognized Keller in the footage, and few were surprised by his presence at the riot. His now-deleted social media accounts included pro-Trump messages.
