Robert Gavin reports for the Times Union that a man from southern Albany County was arrested by the FBI and charged him with taking part in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. William Tryon of Selkirk was expected to be arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Judge Daniel Stewart in Albany on March 30. A William Tryon ran for the Coeymans Town Board in 2015 and lost. There is a YouTube video of the Capitol insurrection with Tryon saying: “This is our country. This is our Capitol building. All we want to do is enter and tell our representatives that we want our country back. We’re not gonna take this!” In the video, an interviewer asked Tryon: “What happened to you? Did you go inside?” Tryon said he was pepper-sprayed “right at the door” and hit with batons two, three times. "Actually, inside," he added. Other locals arrested for attempting to overthrow democracy include 29-year-old James Bonet of Glens Falls and Brandon Fellows, 26, of Niskayuna. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
