He was arrested shortly afterwards on federal charges and CBS News reported he faces up to 20 years behind bars. The Arizona Republic reported that Angeli was taken to FCI Englewood last month for a mental health examination.

Five people died during the insurrection Angeli allegedly participated in. More than 130 officers were injured in the attack, many seriously. Over 300 people have been charged with crimes in connection with the assault on the Capitol, including at least 9 from Colorado.
