JANUARY 8--The brazen Arkansas nitwit who stormed the Capitol, raided Nancy Pelosi’s office, and stole mail from the House Speaker has been arrested by the FBI

Richard Barnett, who was photographed Wednesday with his feet up on a desk in Pelosi’s office, was arrested this morning in Little Rock on three federal charges related to his role in the Capitol insurrection.

Barnett has been charged with theft of public property, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and unlawfully entering a restricted building.

The 60-year-old Barnett, who is known as “Bigo,” was named in a federal complaint and statement of facts filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C..

After exiting the Capitol, Barnett proudly recounted his criminal activity to reporters and showed off a piece of Pelosi correspondence he pilfered. Barnett claimed to have left a quarter on Pelosi’s desk along with a note that said, “Nancy, Bigo is here, you bitch.”

Barnett is in federal custody and expected to make an initial appearance today in U.S. District Court in Little Rock. He will eventually be extradited to Washington, D.C..
