NEW YORK — A retired New York City firefighter has become one of the latest people swept up in the federal investigation of the storming of the U.S. Capitol.
Thomas Fee surrendered Tuesday to face charges in Washington of disorderly conduct and entering a restricted building without permission, authorities said.
Prosecutors say the Long Island man sent selfies from the capitol rotunda during the Jan. 6 riot, describing himself as part of the "tip of the spear."
Fee's arrest follows that on Monday of Nicolas Moncada, a Staten Island resident also accused of participating in the breach of the U.S. Capitol.
Both Fee and Moncada were expected to make initial court appearances in New York on Tuesday. It wasn't immediately clear whether either had lawyers who could speak to the charges.
