According to court documents, the defendants were part of a mob that illegally confronted law enforcement officers on the west front of the Capitol building. Isaac Thomas used a flagpole to attack officers and was recorded by Christina Legros. The defendants entered the Capitol through the Senate Wing Door and paraded to the House side of the building before ascending to the second floor. Isaac Thomas recorded a video message in the Speaker of the House's office, calling for the people to "take their country back." The defendants then moved to a lobby outside the Old Senate Chamber where Thomas clashed with officers again. Both defendants left the Capitol building separately.
