Gabriel Garcia on home detention after CPAC: Judge

Gabriel Garcia in the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 (via DOJ court filings).

A former Army captain who was allegedly heard taunting former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while roaming through the US Capitol on Jan. 6 has had many of his pre-trial travel privileges revoked after the judge overseeing his case determined that he lied to her about wanting to attend a high-profile convention of conservatives.

According to prosecutors, Gabriel Garcia, a Florida resident and member of the Proud Boys extremist group, was at “the very front of the crowd” that rushed a line of police officers trying to stop the siege of Donald Trump supporters at the Capitol. After breaking into the building, Garcia apparently recorded himself calling out to then-Speaker Pelosi.

“Nancy come out and play,” Garcia allegedly said, echoing the calls of other accused rioters calling for various acts of violence against Pelosi.
