UPDATE Texas veteran with zip ties at U.S. Capitol attack, makes first court appearance

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.

    it's not only sad but concerning that this person allegedly believes things that drove him to this horrible act. His beliefs contradict the unbiased job duties of being a firefighter. Scary and weird how these folks were your neighbors before this admin invited them to trumps life of chaos, lies and cons. He'd be a nobody if it wasn't for his daddy screwing the government over for millions. I don't get it. No education, no class, no empathy, an opportunist. what is the end all that these folks are looking for? Did they forget trump had some amazing health plan ready to go last summer? where is that btw? Trump breaks things and puts it back together worse than it was, just to put his name on it. His gold penthouse apartment is not real. It's all an illusion to make people admire him as something he is not....and it worked for so many people. All I can say is...we need to up the budget on education.

I think we are to have efficacy in the world.. charge people only for what they have done.. and do not attach frivolous charges. A lawless law.. is no justice at all. Stacking the evidence or fixing a brief is not right. All for prosecuting these guys and gals who entered the capitol.. but lets do it right.
