3 Minnesota men charged in Jan. 6 US Capitol riot

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Three more Minnesota men have been charged for allegedly participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Federal prosecutors charged 62-year-old Robert Westbury, his 19-year-old son Isaac Westbury and another man, 35-year-old Aaron James, with crimes ranging from assaulting Capitol police officers to disorderly conduct.

The three men, from Lindstrom, were arrested about six months after another son of Westbury’s, 26-year-old Jonah Westbury, was also charged.

With Monday’s arrests, a total of eight Minnesotans have been charged with crimes related to the Jan. 6 insurrection. More than 600 people have been charged overall.
