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.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
