Retired Firefighter Arrested for Allegedly Hurling Fire Extinguisher at Cops During Capitol Riots

A retired Pennsylvania firefighter was arrested Thursday for allegedly throwing a fire extinguisher at several law enforcement officers during the MAGA riots at the Capitol last week.

Robert Sanford, from Chester, Pennsylvania, faces three felony charges, including assaulting a police officer, after he was allegedly caught on camera hurling the extinguisher as the mob stormed past Capitol Police officers and broke into the building on Jan. 6. He was taken into custody by the FBI in Pennsylvania Thursday morning just before 6 a.m., a source with knowledge of the matter told The Daily Beast.

One video of the protest shows rioters storming past a barricade as Capitol Police officers desperately try to contain them on the west side of the building. Then, a rioter can be seen tossing the fire extinguisher toward a group of officers—and striking at least one on the helmet.
