Horned Trump supporter who stormed Capitol refuses to eat jail food since ‘It’s not organic’

A man in a horn hat stood out as one of the protesters when a group of armed Donald Trump supporters stormed the building during a Congress session.

Viral pictures showed the shirtless man, face painted in red, white and blue and the unique fury horn hat.

The man was identified as Jake Angeli. At one point, Angeli was seen on the dais of the U.S. Senate. He posed for a photo flexing his right arm; his left was holding a spear from which hung a U.S. flag.




Jake Angeli turned himself in to the FBI field office after returning from Washington, D.C. Saturday morning. He is accused of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

The 33-year-old was a frequent participant in pro-Trump rallies in Phoenix in recent months. He often appeared in a costume of horns, fur headdress, and tan pants with no shirt.

Chansley addressed the judge but did not make any statements regarding the charges against him. The public defender told Judge Deborah Fine in court Monday that Chansley was on an extremely restrictive diet, perhaps for religious reasons, and had not eaten since he was taken into custody.



Chansley’s mother, Martha, who was in the courtroom explained his diet. “He gets very sick if he doesn’t eat organic food – literally will get physically sick,“ Martha Chansley said.

Judge Fine responded that information was “deeply concerning” and ordered Chansley’s public defender to work with the U.S. Marshal’s Office on the dietary concerns.

After the court order, David Gonzales, U.S. Marshal for the District of Arizona, told ABC15 that Chansley would be provided food in line with a shaman’s strict organic diet.
