SALT LAKE CITY — A 48-year-old man from West Jordan was arrested Wednesday on charges that include assaulting a law enforcement officer during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Justin Dee Adams was arrested in West Jordan and charged in a criminal complaint filed in the District of Columbia. Other charges include resisting or impeding law enforcement officers and interfering with law enforcement officers during a civil disorder.

Court documents indicate that Adams was on U.S. Capitol grounds with many others on Jan. 6, 2021. The documents indicate that he confronted officers, was pushed back by officers and then charged at them.

Adams was arrested pending a detention hearing scheduled for Oct. 28, 2022.
