Riverside man arrested in Capitol riot after coworker recognizes him in news photo

A Riverside man who believes in QAnon and other conspiracy theories was arrested Thursday for participating in the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, authorities said.

Andrew Alan Hernandez, 44, was identified by a coworker who recognized him in a news photo of rioters who stormed the Capitol in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden's victory over incumbent Donald Trump in the November presidential election, according to an FBI statement filed in U.S. District Court in Washington.

Hernandez was fired from his job after his Riverside employer confronted him about wearing clothing identifying the company when he joined the mob's violent entry into the Capitol, the FBI statement said. The company received a complaint from someone who noticed the clothing in a photo on the cover of the New York Times Magazine, according to the FBI.

The affidavit included multiple photos purporting to show Hernandez inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, along with social media postings on his beliefs in various conspiracy theories. In one Twitter post, Hernandez said the U.S. would turn into "a tyrannical dictatorship" if Americans failed to fight attempts to "steal the vote" from Trump.

"Fight Fight Fight," he wrote.

2. "You are the Greatest President These United States of American Has Had!"

The affidavit included multiple photos purporting to show Hernandez in the Capitol on Jan. 6, along with social media posts on his beliefs in various conspiracy theories. In one Twitter post, Hernandez said the U.S. would turn into "a tyrannical dictatorship" if Americans failed to fight attempts to "steal the vote" from Trump.

"Fight Fight Fight," he wrote.

The posts show that Hernandez believes in "Q-Anon, health and science related conspiracies, financial conspiracies, and various conspiracies associated to U.S. political figures," the FBI statement said.

Hernandez tweeted a photo of a burning "Q" a symbol associated with QAnon over a United States seal. Hernandez's postings also heaped praise on Trump, according to the FBI. "You are the Greatest President These United States of American Has Had!" one of his tweets said.

6. What a dumbshit to wear a hat and shirt bearing the name and logo of the Riverside company where he

worked. Being a MORON got him fired from his job.

7. I fully admit I scanned the crowd photos to see if I could spot a former co-worker

She was an over the top, right wing, evangelical nut job. Pretty much the classic MAGAt. I'm glad I'll never have to see or hear her, ever again, but had I spotting her IN the building, I would most definitely have made that call.
