PORTLAND, Maine (WMTW) - The Maine man accused of taking part in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has been indicted on 10 criminal counts.

A grand jury in Washington, D.C., handed down the indictment against Kyle Fitzsimons on Friday. All prosecutions in connection with the Capitol riot are being handed in Washington.

The charges against Fitzsimons include civil disorder, entering a restricted building, obstructing an official proceeding and injuring police officers.

Fitzsimons was arrested in Lebanon last month and waived his right to a bail hearing in Maine. He has been transferred from the Cumberland County Jail and is currently being detained at a federal jail in Rhode Island.

Fitzsimons, a supporter of former President Donald Trump, is one of 261 men and women from 40 states facing charges for the riot.
