Oklahoma man accused in Capitol breach ordered released

(AP) A federal judge has ordered a Muskogee, Oklahoma, man arrested for allegedly taking part in the storming of the U.S. Capitol this month released on $10,000 bond. Federal court records show U.S. Magistrate Judge Kimberly West ordered 23-year-old Andrew Craig Ericson’s release Monday following his initial appearance in Muskogee. Authorities allege Ericson livestreamed video of himself entering the Capitol with other rioters and taking beer out of a Capitol refrigerator. He’s also accused of posting photos of himself posing in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. A telephone message left Monday with Ericson’s attorney wasn’t immediately returned.
