Pro-Trump protesters, some armed, storm the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. Wednesday afternoon as Congress gathers inside to certify President-elect Joe Biden's electoral college victory.

A third South Florida man has been arrested by the FBI on charges of participating in a riot at the nation’s Capitol Building on Jan. 6.

Samuel Camargo, 26, is charged with civil disorder, unlawfully entering the Capitol and disorderly conduct. He is one of two Florida men charged on Wednesday with similar crimes. The other was Joseph Randall Biggs, 37, a Proud Boys member who was arrested in Central Florida.

On Tuesday, Felipe Marquez of Coral Springs and Gabriel Augstin Garcia of Miami were both arrested and charged with illegally entering the Capitol grounds and disorderly conduct. Both men were charged after tipsters sent the FBI social media footage the two men posted that documented their actions while inside the Capitol Building.
