1 min read


A Colorado Springs man accused of pushing past barricades to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and obstructing Congress’ proceeding to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election was found guilty Friday at a federal bench trial. 

Tyler Ethridge is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 18 after a U.S District Court for the District of Columbia judge found that Ethridge “acted knowingly and corruptly” when he resisted police officers’ guarding the Capitol and remained inside for more than 30 minutes despite orders to leave. 

Ethridge was convicted of six charges, including civil disorder and tampering with a victim, witness or informant. He is the latest Coloradan to be found guilty of federal crimes accusing them of their involvement in the Jan. 6 riot.
