A Virginia police officer charged in the deadly US Capitol riots allegedly boasted to a pal that he used House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s toilet during the uprising, according to a report.
Jacob Fracker, along with fellow Rocky Mount Police officer Thomas Robertson, were allegedly among the horde of supporters of then-President Trump who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 in an attempt to prevent Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s election win.
The day after the riot, Fracker allegedly sent a video to a pal over Facebook showing him wearing a gas mask inside the Capitol and bragging about his exploits, The Daily Beast reported, citing an FBI search warrant application the outlet obtained.
“Turning the camera towards himself, Fracker hits his chest multiple times,” the application reportedly states. “Fracker tells his Facebook friend, ‘S–t was wild lol I pissed in Nancy P’s toilet.’”
Fracker, who is reportedly also a corporal in the Virginia National Guard and a Marine Corps veteran, allegedly went on to claim in a message to the unidentified friend that he was among the first rioters to breach the seat of of American democracy.
“We did hahaha it was f–king amazing,” he wrote, according to the report. “Flash bangs going off, CS gas, rubber bullets flying by. Felt so good to be back in the s–t hahaha I was like 8th person inside the building, s–t was f–kin LIT.”
Five people died during the riot, among them a US Capitol Police officer pepper-sprayed and bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher.
Pelosi and her office were apparently among the primary targets of some of the rioters.
One rioter sat in the California Democrat’s chair and propped his foot up on her desk, and another swiped her laptop, while some stalked the halls calling her name, authorities have alleged.
Fracker, who is charged with unlawful entry into a restricted area and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, is on administrative leave.
It was not immediately clear if he had retained a lawyer to speak on his behalf.
He is among several law-enforcement officers from across the nation charged in or suspected of attending the riots.
