Mill Valley man charged with assaulting officers during U.S. Capitol riot

A Bay Area man has been charged with assaulting U.S. Capitol police during the Jan. 6 riot.

Evan Neumann was indicted Friday on 14 counts, including civil disorder and assault on officers, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest, but investigators say he fled the country in February and may be hiding in Belarus.

Neumann was caught on camera inside the Capitol wearing a gas mask while violently punching and pushing officers.

The 49-year-old allegedly told police that they will be "overrun" by the crowd and that, "I’m willing to die, are you?"
