FORT WORTH, Texas - A North Texas man charged with participating the U.S. Capitol riot made his first appearance in court on Monday.
Larry Brock is one of dozens of suspects the FBI identified from video and images taken inside the Capitol. Images from the riot show Brock inside the U.S. Senate chamber with white flex cuffs.
Cameras weren't allowed inside the federal courthouse in Fort Worth. The Monday hearing lasted just five minutes and Brock was escorted into the courtroom by two U.S Marshals.
A judge determined Brock qualified for a court-appointed defense attorney. Brock was then ordered held in the custody of the U.S. Marshals until his probable cause and detention hearing scheduled for Thursday.
A mug shot, released by the grapevine police department shortly afterward Monday’s appearance, shows how brock looked at the time of the brief hearing. His hands were cuffed in front of his black t-shirt and his legs shackled around his jeans.
The retired lieutenant colonel in the Air Force Reserves was identified by his ex-wife as the man photographed -- and captured on surveillance video wearing combat gear and items to potentially detain and arrest people on the senate floor during the January 6 Capitol riot.
The arrest affidavit quoted Brock's ex-wife, who reportedly called the FBI National Threat Operations Center. She said, in part, "I just know that when I saw this was happening I was afraid he would be there... It is such a good picture of him and I recognize his patch."
"There's a wealth of potential criminal offenses in addition to the 2 that they charged that would be available.
Richard Roper is a former U.S Attorney for the Northern District of Texas not associated with the case and said video evidence will be key in prosecuting.
"It nails down the identity of the perpetrator," Roper said.
According to the affidavit, filed in the District of Columbia, Brock is charged with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Both are federal charges.
"There's two charges, essentially a criminal trespass charge being in a place you’re not authorized to be," Roper said. "Both of those charges, interestingly, are misdemeanor charges -- meaning punishment range would be less than one year in prison unless someone carries a dangerous weapon."
Brock's defense attorney did not have any comment. But he did say after Thursday's hearing, the case will be turned over to the courts in D.C. since that is where the alleged crimes took place.

    A note for my right-leaning family and friends from my left-leaning self as we all head down the road to the election: They say we want to disband police departments (and that we hate the police): we don’t, that’s a lie. We want to weed out racism and unnecessary police brutality and for those who abuse their power to be held accountable. They say we want to release all prisoners: we don’t, that’s a lie. We want to weed out racism and ensure the punishments match the crimes and to deprivatize prisons. They say we want open borders: we don’t, that’s a lie. We want asylum seekers to be given their chance to seek asylum. We want to help people who are coming from unimaginable terror and poverty, to help to give them the chance we have. We want to ensure children aren’t separated from their parents and that nobody is kept in cages. But we do want proper vetting. They say we want to take away your guns: we don’t, that’s a lie. We want logical gun control to help prevent mass shootings. They say we want to wage a war on Christianity and Christian values: we don’t, that’s a lie. We want people of all religions to be able to practice and worship freely. Some of us love Jesus too. They say we want to get everything for free, or that we think handouts are okay: we don’t, that’s a lie. We want to work hard and make sure that healthcare and education are affordable for ALL. They say we want a war against traditional marriage: we don’t, that’s a lie. We want all people to be able to love freely, no matter who you love. They say we want to destroy or rewrite history: we don’t, that’s a lie. We want to recognize the ugly parts of our past and do everything we can to say “that’s not okay, let’s not honor those aggressors, let’s not let those things happen again.” They say we want to take away your constitutional rights: we don’t, that’s a lie. We choose to believe science and wear masks and try to prevent the spread of this disease. They say we hate America: we don’t, that’s a lie. We just recognize our faults and want us to do better, be better. Stop with the us vs. them. Our position is one of empathy, compassion, and logic. Please stop believing the hype. Stop with the division. Stop with the generalizations. Just because we want equality for all doesn’t mean we want to take anything away from you. Copied/pasted from a friend because it’s true... @_timtuttle

    Why are most of these people from the south and close to where I live? I haven't slept well at all these last 4 years. I've been worried of another white supremacist attack like the OKC bombing. I was a kid when it happened and left just a few blocks away from where it happened. My mom was getting a garage sale permit and kept the receipt from it for a long time. We had left just minutes after the explosion. Any Trump supporter trying to act like it wasn't trumpers who did the insurrection is just straight up lying about it, all the supporters around here have been saying for years "there going to be a revolution " or "there's going to be another civil war" I had people at work excited and saying the revolution has started as we were all watching the insurrection on TV. One of them told me to mark their words while it was happening, that in a few years there will be a revolution and something about Venezuela taking over, I said I don't know where you get your info from but, this is about to get really ugly at the capital, they said they hope it does, I think they was hoping to see a public execution, I was talking about the military showing up and laying to waste all these people kind of ugly. I said to them, mark my words, all of these people are in serious trouble, and in a few years nothing is going to be changed, this and always will be America, not you or anyone is going to take it away. I have had a very hard time sleeping at night living in a trump heavy area that thinks all these conspiracies are facts because they heard from a person and they hear it all the time. Its a serious problem down here and the only thing I can do is slowly prove them wrong. I have saved my brothers and mom and step dad so far, working on my sisters and co-workers but its going take some time. I just wish I had more level headed people out here to talk all these good people down from the edge.

    How do they know he had flex cuffs? He was not arrested at the scene. How do they know he wasn't allowed in by the officers at the door? The officers invited many people inside. If I were a defense attorney, this would be my inquiry. He maybe guilty or maybe not. Being there doesn't prove guilt. Once again, many people were allowed in at the door by police. Being allowed in isn't a crime.
