A man from South Paris, Maine, was arrested earlier this week for his alleged connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the United States Capitol. 

Todd Tilley was taken into custody Tuesday and is charged with four counts related to entering restricted areas, disruptive conduct in restricted areas and on Capitol grounds, and demonstrating in a Capitol building, according to a release from the Boston division of the FBI.

His initial appearance took place at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at the U.S. District Court in Portland, Maine, and he was “ordered released on conditions,” according to the release.
