US Inbetweeners star arrested for allegedly taking part in Capitol riots

Carico was arrested on the 11th of August, charged with entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restrictive building or grounds, disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; and parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

The FBI stated that Carico inadvertently bragged to an informant about his participation at the Capitol riots.

He had been heard on the grounds of the US Capitol that he had just been inside the building and that he responded with ‘michaelaaroncarico’ when asked what his Facebook account was.

FBI investigators then found his Instagram account where they discovered pictures of a man who matched the description of the individual seen in the video.

A device that was linked to his Google account also found that he was within close proximity of the Capitol grounds between 2:18pm and 3:55pm.
