Authorities say Black was identified from a photograph taken on the Senate floor and from a YouTube video he made in which he spoke about how the crowd became an angry mob because they thought President Donald Trump’s election was stolen.

A federal agent wrote in the man arrest documents that Black was identified as a man photographed on the Senate floor and as a person who recorded an anonymous video two days later describing his experience.
