Prosecutors said the 36-year-old Minuta, a member of the far-right Oath Keepers militia, entered the Capitol during the insurrection wearing tactical gear, ballistic goggles, carrying a can of bear spray, and wearing a radio earpiece, indicated he was communicating with others participating in the riot.

Minuta was reportedly at the Capitol acting as a bodyguard for Roger Stone, former President Donald Trump’s political ally.

Early during the economic “pause” because of the pandemic, Minuta defied Governor Cuomo’s order by opening his tattoo parlor, Casa DiDolore.
