Ohio man charged in Capitol riots accused of stealing coat stand

COLUMBUS, Ohio — An Ohio man is charged with stealing a coat rack during the US Capitol riots and another was found with marijuana and an open bottle of bourbon, according to court records.

Dustin Byron Thompson and Robert Anthony Lyon were sitting on the sidewalk on a street near the U.S. Capitol grounds hours after the Jan. 6 rioting when they were approached by two Capitol Police special agents.

Thompson, 36, of Columbus’ University District, was wearing a Trump 2020 winter hat and a bulletproof vest, and Lyon, 27, whom records indicate has resided in Columbus and Reynoldsburg, had a Trump 2020 flag. The pair told the agents they were waiting for an Uber to take them back to their Maryland hotel, according to court records obtained by The (Columbus) Dispatch, part of the USA TODAY Network.
