US judicial authorities have been trying to identify and take action against those who stormed the US Capitol last week. It has been learned that Olympic swimming medalist Klete Keller was among those charged with alleged participation in the riot.
Gold medalist Keller was charged on Wednesday with knowingly entering a restricted building.
Documents submitted to a court reportedly say a media outlet dedicated to covering swimming pointed out that Keller was seen among the rioters in the Capitol building in video footage. He was wearing a US Olympic team jacket.
Authorities have charged at least 70 people in connection with the storming into the Capitol building.
Two off-duty police officers face criminal charges with unlawful entry. A West Virginia state lawmaker and a son of a court judge in the state of New York were also arrested.
Officials have been using pictures and videos taken at the storming to look for participants.
In Washington D.C., digital photos showing people who took part in the violence have been installed at bus stops, seeking information on them. A reward of 50,000 dollars is offered for clues.
Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen published a statement on Wednesday, appealing to the public to offer information.
