Alam caused more than $1,000 worth of damage to the glass panels of the doors to the Speaker’s Lobby of the U.S. Capitol building.
It is alleged that on January 6, the doors to an area known as the Speaker’s Lobby, a hallway that connects to the House Chamber, were barricaded and guarded by three officers of the United States Capitol Police. Video footage from inside the Capitol building shows Alam repeatedly punching the glass panels of the doors located immediately behind the officers and then kicking the glass and smashing the glass with a helmet, ultimately breaking the windows.
