Executive Summary

According to court documents, Mock was on the lower west terrace of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, where he was seen on body-worn camera (BWC) footage repeatedly assaulting multiple law enforcement officers who were trying to protect the building from rioters.

As alleged, at approximately 2:30 p.m., Mock was seen on BWC footage shoving a U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) officer to the ground while another rioter grabbed the officer’s legs and Mock kicked the officer as he lay on the ground. A few minutes later, Mock cornered USCP and Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers and shoved another USCP officer to the ground. The crowd continued to advance and assault other officers, and Mock picked up multiple USCP riot shields and passed them back to other members of the violent crowd.
