    Federal officials charge Lansing man in Jan. 6 siege at US Capitol

    A Michigan man was arrested Tuesday in connection with the siege of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, federal officials announced.

    Logan James Barnhart, 40, of Lansing has been charged with offenses including civil disorder; assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers using a dangerous weapon/aiding and abetting; and engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

    He was listed in a superseding indictment unsealed Tuesday that added charges for three of five previously indicted defendants, according to the release.

    A 27-year-old Tennessee man, Ronald Colton McAbee, also was arrested Tuesday in connection with the case, investigators said.

    Barnhart had been among hundreds of people the FBI sought to identify as having unlawfully entered the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C., in a bid to disrupt a joint session of Congress working to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.
