The FBI arrested a man for attempting to incite violence at the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee. On Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida announced Daniel Baker was in custody after he put out a call to arms.
The former combat veteran attempted to recruit Florida residents to violently confront demonstrators planning to peacefully protest the election results at the state’s Capitol on January 20. Authorities said they plan to detain Baker until at least the day after the inauguration.
