A man was arrested in Owensboro, Kentucky on Monday in connection to the chaos at the U.S. Capitol that took place on Wednesday, Jan. 6.

According to FBI Louisville, Jordan T. Revlett was arrested in Owensboro on Monday in connection to the riot.

They say Revlett is facing charges of Unlawful Entry on Restricted Grounds, and Violent Entry or Disorderly Conduct.

Revlett is currently in federal custody. His initial court appearance took place on Monday, Jan. 25 - the same day of his arrest.

According to a criminal complaint, a witness shared with the FBI a screen recording and a selfie posted to a Snapchat account tied to Revlett.

That video appears to show him inside and around the U.S. Capitol building.

Screenshots of those posts were included in criminal complaint.

One appears to be a selfie of Revlett, with the caption "Just so you guys know a capitol police officer opened the door from inside to let us in."

The report shares the FBI interviewed Revlett earlier this month.

He told agents he'd gone to Washington to hear then-President Donald Trump speak, and walked with his parents to the Capitol.

The report indicates he admitted to going inside the Capitol, but he denied breaking anything or participating in any violence.

He joins a growing list of individuals who are now facing federal charges in connection to the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill chaos.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
