Andrea Macko reports at Porcupine Soup that a Rensselaerville man is the latest local to be arrested for his part of the attempted coup in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021. Troy Weeks, 37, who used to live in Greenville, was arrested on Jan. 10. He was charged with obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds, impeding passage through the Capitol grounds or buildings, and assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers. The criminal complaint against Weeks says, in part, "law enforcement identified an individual who pushed against police and stole a can of oleoresin capsicum spray from a police officer while located near an entrance to the U.S. Capitol." The Federal Bureau of Investigation says they found him through an Instagram account belonging to a woman with the last name of Weeks. An estimated 979 defendants have been charged so far in the attempted coup, including several from the Hudson Valley. Read the full story at Porcupine Soup.
