CAPITOL DEFENDANT PROFILE: Kevin Seefried from Delaware

The Laurel man photographed carrying a Confederate flag in the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot was indicted this week along with his son on counts of obstruction, entering restricted property, disorderly conduct and picketing in a capitol building.

Kevin Seefried and his son, Hunter, both face five counts in the indictment filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington. Hunter faces three additional counts after he was seen in photos and videos damaging government property.

Court documents, citing video footage, say the Seefrieds entered the Capitol building through a window that Hunter helped break at about 2:13 p.m.

Kevin and Hunter Seefried were in a large group that "verbally confronted" several U.S. Capitol Police officers, court documents say. Hunter Seefried is seen in video footage taking a "selfie photograph," documents say.
