A self-proclaimed DJ who posted video of himself smoking what appears to be marijuana in the Capitol building during last month's insurrection has been arrested, officials say.
Greg Rubenacker, from Farmingdale, New York, was taken into custody on Tuesday, the FBI announced on Twitter.
Rubenacker, who on Facebook says he's a DJ, has been charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
According to a criminal complaint seen by Insider, the FBI says Rubenacker posted several videos on Snapchat depicting events at former President
In one video, someone offscreen that the FBI believes to be Rubenacker says: "Holy s--t! This is history! We took the Capitol!"
In another video, Rubenacker says, "Smoke out the Capitol, baby," and is seen smoking what the FBI says "appears to be a marijuana cigarette."
"Rubenacker then shows other individuals sitting near him and smoking in the Rotunda with a distinctive statue standing nearby. One of the other individuals then says 'How many joints we have?' and can be seen counting the people around him smoking, including Rubenacker, who is holding his marijuana cigarette up in the air," the criminal complaint said. "Rubenacker then immediately pans the camera back to himself and says 'Hell yeah,' as he puts the cigarette back into his mouth, inhales, and exhales smoke into the Capitol Rotunda."
The FBI said a former classmate submitted a tip about Rubenacker's participation in the riot after seeing his videos on Snapchat.
Rubenacker is one of more than 240 people to be charged in the January 6 insurrection, during which five people died, including a Capitol police officer.
