Two Springfield Men Arrested in Connection with Capitol Riot

Two men who were wanted by the FBI in connection with the January 6 incident at the U.S. Capitol surrendered to authorities.

Michael Aaron Quick and Stephen Brian Quick were arrested on federal charges of Restricted Buildings or Grounds; Unlawful Activities on Capitol Grounds; Disorderly Conduct; Parading, and Demonstrating in the Capitol Building.

Court documents say the Quick brothers spoke with FBI agents and admitted to going inside the Capitol building during the rioting. They claim police made no attempt to stop them from going inside the building.

The brothers told authorities they didn’t realize they were committing a crime by entering the building. Stephen Quick told investigators he was ashamed of what he had done by going inside the Capitol building.

The charges against the men are misdemeanors that if convicted could bring a sentence of a year in prison and fines.

The Quick brothers, along with Zachary Martin, a Rogersville man arrested weeks ago, are represented by attorney Dee Wampler. The Quick brothers will appear in a U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. via video conference on February 19, 2021.
