Woman who bragged she’s a ‘January 6 defendant’ at Trump rally is thrown in jail

A Texas woman has been found guilty by the D.C. Superior Court a charge of resisting efforts by law enforcement officers to clear the U.S. Capitol grounds after the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Micki Larson-Olson, 53, was found guilty by a jury on Sept. 29, 2022, of unlawful entry onto public property. She was sentenced on Sept. 30 to a 180-day jail term.

From the DOJ:

According to the government’s evidence, on the afternoon of Jan. 6, 2021, officers from the Metropolitan Police Department responded to the west side of the Capitol to assist the U.S. Capitol Police in clearing individuals from the grounds. The officers remained there for hours, clearing an enormous crowd illegally gathered on the grounds. At approximately 5:15 p.m., officers were clearing individuals from the scaffolding on the west side of the Capitol. They approached Larson-Olson, who was dressed in a Captain America costume and holding two flags in the air. Officers repeatedly asked her to leave. She refused, lowering herself down and holding onto the scaffolding with her arms and legs, actively resisting the officers’ orders. During the incident, she swore at officers and called them “traitors.” It took six officers who were forced to physically carry her from the scaffolding area as she screamed at and fought them.

Olson spoke publicly about her defendant status during an interview with the Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) at the Save America Rally that was held in Ohio earlier this month.

“I’m a January 6 defendant — can we say that?” she said to the camera.
