WASHINGTON – An Elliston man arrested and charged in connection with the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol is now facing new charges.

According to court documents, a grand jury indicted Jeremy Groseclose on six counts:

  • Civil disorder
  • 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
  • Parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building

Groseclose was initially arrested at his home in eastern Montgomery County on Feb. 25 on four federal charges: obstruction of law enforcement, obstruction of Congress, knowingly entering a restricted building and violent entry on Capitol grounds.

Shortly after his release, he went before a judge in Roanoke’s federal court after his arrest and was released on a $20,000 bond.

Court documents did not disclose when the date of his next court appearance.
