Arkansas Man Arrested for Assaulting Police Officers during Jan 6 Capitol Riots; Also Hoisted Anti-Govt Group Flag: FEDS

An individual from Arkansas has been apprehended by the Justice Department for allegedly assaulting police officers at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. After the incident, the person proceeded to climb a media tower and display the flag of a far-right anti-government organization called the Three Percenters.

A statement released on Monday by federal prosecutors announced that David Michael Camden is facing several serious charges, including assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers and civil disorder. A man from Tonitown is facing multiple misdemeanor charges related to his actions in a restricted building or grounds.

These charges include entering and remaining in the restricted area, disorderly and disruptive conduct, engaging in physical violence, disorderly conduct in a Capitol building, and an act of physical violence in the Capitol grounds or buildings.

According to body camera footage, there is a video that reportedly shows an incident where Camden can be seen shouting at officers and pushing a bike rack barricade into them. This occurred approximately 20 minutes after rioters had initially breached a restricted area. The footage suggests that Camden was attempting to push the line of police officers backward.

Despite the officers’ attempts to deter him using a chemical irritant, Camden persisted. At around 2:11 p.m. on Jan. 6, video evidence from multiple sources captured Camden using a fire extinguisher against police officers before proceeding towards the west front of the Capitol.

Camden allegedly climbed a media tower and proudly waved a flag associated with the Three Percenters.

Several members of the Three Percenters were present at the Capitol on January 6th. Evidence presented in Justice Department prosecutions of individuals linked to the anti-government pro-militia movement revealed connections and relationships between their followers and members of the far-right Oath Keepers and the “Western chauvinist” Proud Boys group. A number of high-ranking members from the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, who participated in the Capitol breach on January 6th, have been tried, convicted, and are currently serving prison sentences for seditious conspiracy.

Following the events of Jan. 6, online investigators discovered that Camden, known as #Littlemansprayer, may have been present during the incident. They reported their findings to the FBI, stating that they had spotted Camden in a recorded interview alongside another individual believed to be involved in the riot on Jan. 5. During the interview, Camden chose not to disclose his identity, but he provided details about his background. He mentioned being originally from Nebraska and currently residing in Washington state. Additionally, he mentioned being an Army veteran and having prior experience with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Based on this information, prosecutors revealed that the FBI successfully located Camden and compared the details obtained from another interview with someone who knew him personally. This individual was able to identify Camden in the photos taken on January 6th.

It remains uncertain whether Camden has sought legal representation, and as of Wednesday, a future court date has not been scheduled.

As previously reported by Law&Crime, four individuals affiliated with the Three Percenters were sentenced in April for their involvement in the insurrection at the Capitol. These individuals were seen wielding knives and wearing tactical gear during the incident.

They have been found guilty of engaging in a conspiracy to impede an official proceeding, along with obstructing an official proceeding and committing various other felonies and misdemeanors.

In December, Alan Hostetter, a former police chief from California and supporter of the Three Percenters movement, was sentenced to 11 years in prison. He had been seen wielding a hatchet and other weapons during the events at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
