Jan 6 rioter who took a leak on Capitol building column pleads guilty

Robert “Bob” Snow, 78, who told investigators that he urinated on a column inside the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021, has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor, Law&Crime reports.

Snow pled guilty to to parading, demonstrating, or picketing inside the Capitol building. While being interviewed by investigators last year, Snow admitted to being inside the Capitol building that day along with the mob of Trump supporters. He was seen on surveillance footage “waving people into the building and patting people on the back as they enter,” as well as other areas inside the Capitol.

“Once inside, Snow walked upstairs through multiple locations including the Rotunda and Statuary Hall and then made his way up another set of stairs to the third floor,” court documents say.

In a second interview, Snow said that after he was searched by law enforcement and told to exit, he re-entered the building shortly thereafter and “urinated on a column inside an area he thought to be a cafeteria and then exited once more.”

From Law&Crime:

Snow was charged with the standard collection of misdemeanors against Jan. 6 defendants, including disorderly conduct and entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds. Those charges will be dropped when Snow is sentenced.

Snow faces up to six months in jail and a $5,000 fine.
