Latest Coloradan charged in Jan. 6 insurrection wrote “I fought for this nation” on Facebook, feds say

Another Colorado man was arrested Wednesday on federal charges after authorities say he participated in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

Multiple videos and photos show that Logan Grover, of Erie, took part in the insurrection, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday and unsealed Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Grover also posted on Facebook about planning to participate in the gathering, according to the complaint, and two tipsters relayed that information to the FBI.

“If you accept the reality that the election was stolen, than (sic) you cannot accept Biden as the new president — & neither can I,” Grover wrote in the Facebook post, according to a screenshot included in the criminal complaint. “Which is why I flew to DC yesterday. I fought for this nation.”

Grover is charged with four criminal counts: knowingly entering a restricted building without authority, disorderly conduct, violent entry to Capitol grounds and parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

The photos included in the complaint show Grover standing with other rioters both inside and outside the Capitol building. In one photo, he is checking his phone. The photos do not show him taking violent action, although in his Facebook post, Grover said he expected violence to occur during the event.

“I have no interest in violence,” he wrote. “Sadly I recognize that violence is highly likely. I’m not certain what’s going to happen tomorrow. I am certain I need to be there.”

Grover is at least the eighth Coloradoan to be arrested on charges he participated in the riot.
