A federal judge has ruled that a Cleveland man charged in connection with the riots at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th is a ‘danger to the community.’
Because of that, the judge ordered Jose Padilla must remain in federal custody, despite his attorney’s pleas to release him on bond.
Padilla is charged with assaulting law enforcement officers at the same place where following the insurrection, national guardsmen were called to protect. FBI officials say they received an anonymous tip that Padilla made posts on his Facebook page, admitting to taking part in the riots.
Padilla faces a total of six charges, including obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, assault law enforcement officer with a deadly or dangerous weapon, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
