Authorities: New Jersey man arrested for alleged role in Capitol riot
A southern New Jersey man who bills himself as a “dating and relationship strategist” is facing criminal charges in connection with the riots at the Capitol this month.
Patrick Stedman was arrested Thursday and charged with unlawful entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. A criminal complaint says the 32-year-old Haddonfield resident posted videos of himself traveling to Washington, D.C. and taking part in the breach of the Capitol on Jan. 6.
Stedman was scheduled to make an initial court appearance Thursday in federal court in Camden. It wasn't immediately known if he had retained an attorney.
