Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was charged Monday with seditious conspiracy in connection with the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, as federal prosecutors added new accusations to an earlier indictment of the far-right group’s onetime chairman.
Tarrio, 38, was charged along with four top other members of the Proud Boys group: Ethan Nordean, Joseph Biggs, Zachary Rehl, and Dominic Pezzola. All five of them have been detained for months on separate charges connected to the Capitol attack, including obstruction of an official proceeding.
