NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A Metro-North worker accused of taking part in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol has been fired.

Will Pepe was arrested in February and appeared in federal court in White Plains.

Metro-North says he was terminated for conduct unbecoming an employee and time sheet fraud.
