Latest alleged Oaf Creeper arrested in Capitol riot turned over body armor and firearm [View all]

Another alleged Oath Keepers associate was arrested Friday in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, accused of joining a “stack formation” of organized members who prosecutors say marched up the east steps and entered the Rotunda in camouflage and tactical gear.

David Moerschel, 43, of Punta Gorda, Fla., was charged by criminal complaint Thursday with three counts, including conspiracy and obstructing Congress. Moerschel joined some defendants who prosecutors allege staged in advance at an Arlington hotel, where they say weapons were stored for a “Quick Reaction Force” site.

His arrest makes him at least the 18th alleged Oath Keeper in a group whose members prosecutors have accused of plotting and communicating in advance to breach the Capitol and disrupt Congress that day.

“We look forward to proving Mr. Moerschel’s innocence,” said his attorney, Scott Weinberg. Moerschel made an initial appearance in federal court in Fort Myers, Fla., and was conditionally released on $25,000 unsecured bond.
