A 21-year-old Plover man is the latest Wisconsin resident to face federal charges for the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Conlin Weyer was arrested Friday by federal agents. He is charged with disorderly conduct, entering a restricted building and parading in the Capitol.

Court documents include photographs of a man identified Weyer with a crowd of insurgents at the doors to the Capitol, and then inside the building. One photograph shows the man identified as Weyer inside the Capitol Rotunda.
