John George Todd III, a Missouri man, faces a jury trial for multiple felonies related to the Capitol riot, including injuring an officer with a tent pole.

Initially charged with misdemeanors, additional video evidence led to felony charges.

The trial has seen contentious moments, with the judge rejecting defenses related to First Amendment protection and claims of FBI provocation.

Todd’s alleged actions include assaulting officers and resisting police orders.

The case also involves unusual events, including Todd’s attempt to testify before the grand jury and a request for the government to produce records related to charter buses.

Notably, Todd’s personal struggles, including combat-related PTSD, have been cited in the proceedings.
