Supporters of President Donald Trump were confronted by U.S. Capitol Police officers on Jan. 6 outside the Senate Chamber.

Federal prosecutors have charged three Lindstrom men in connection with the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, including allegedly using a shield to assault law enforcement.

Prosecutors in the District of Columbia charged Robert Westbury, 62, his son, Isaac Westbury, 19, and a third man, Aaron James, 35, with crimes ranging from assaulting Capitol police officers to disrupting government business. The arrests occurred barely six months after another son, Jonah Westbury, 26, was charged in connection with the Capitol siege.

The FBI arrested the three men on Monday and a judge unsealed a 10-count indictment - five felonies, five misdemeanors - following their first court appearance. All five felony charges are against Isaac Westbury and James, who also both face additional misdemeanor charges.
