A man who was photographed carrying a large Confederate flag through the halls of the U.S. Capitol during the deadly events of Jan. 6 and arrested days later was indicted on Thursday on five additional criminal counts by a grand jury.

CNBC reported that Kevin Seefried, seen in viral images carrying the flagpole through the building, and his son Hunter Seefried were indicted Thursday on five counts each related to entering restricted federal property and disorderly conduct. Hunter Seefried also faces three additional counts related to destruction of property, according to the news channel.

The charges follow an initial indictment against the two men in January, when they were charged with three counts including entering a restricted building, disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and violent entry.

The two Delaware men were reportedly identified, according to an FBI affidavit obtained by CNBC, by one of Hunter Seefried’s coworkers after the younger Seefried reportedly bragged about participation in the deadly riot, during which five people including one U.S. Capitol Police officer were killed.

An FBI agent also wrote in the affidavit that video posted on Twitter showed Hunter Seefried punching out the remains of a damaged glass window on Capitol grounds after other rioters had broken the glass.

The Hill has reached out for comment from the Justice Department on Thursday’s indictments.
