Missouri Man Faces Federal Charges Tied To Capitol Breach
A St. Louis-area man is now the third Missourian facing federal charges in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Paul S. Westover of Lake St. Louis made his initial court appearance Thursday on a felony count of impeding law enforcement officers.
He's also charged with three misdemeanors accusing him of entering a restricted building, disorderly conduct impeding government business, and disruptive conduct in the Capitol.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in St. Louis says the case against Westover is sealed and he could not provide any details about the allegations.
